Book Iceland Reports

Land & Texture: Exploring Iceland for Content in Artist Books

The directors at the Gullkistan Center for Creativity in southern Iceland invited me to teach a workshop on “something related to books and texture”. The invitation prompted me to reflect on my travels and experiences there, and my impressions & thoughts about its landscape of unique textures and colors not seen elsewhere on this earth. The two words, books & texture, guided me in shaping the workshop.

Last summer I returned to Iceland to teach the workshop, Book Iceland. On April 2nd, I will report back on it in a talk entitled, Land & Texture: Exploring Iceland For Content in Artist Books at the San Francisco Center For the Book. Book Iceland was inspired by the natural energies that shaped Iceland’s landscapes. Participating artists explored materials, tools, and processes — forming content for their artist book projects.

The talk is one of several public programs offered during the exhibition, Posted/Unposted, an exhibition of artist books, letterpress & printmaking from the Nordic collective Codex Polaris of the greater Scandinavian book arts community.

Date:
Tuesday, April 2, 6 - 8 pm (Talk @ 6:30 pm)

Location:
San Francisco Center for the Book

Gullkistan Center for Creativity and I invite you to take part in this Book Arts seminar in Iceland during the summer of 2018. Participants will explore Iceland's varied landscape; look at how the natural processes have shaped the landscape and explore ways to express those energies through artistic experimentation.  Those experiments will be content for two book structures taught during the workshop - the drumleaf binding and coptic-bound cover book.

The workshop is for artists of all levels interested in exploring the book form and learning about Iceland, its book culture & history, weather, and diverse landscapes.
