Since I make handmade papers that I cut up into shapes and use to make my fine art collages it means I’ve got lots of very-special paper scraps about. I don’t want to just throw them away – so I make book covers out of the “special scrap bits” and Judy sews them into little books. Then, under the banner “This Artist Studio” we ship batches of books to Art-O-Mat in North Carolina. The folks at Art-O-Mat put our books in old cigarette vending machines in various locations, people walk up, put in their change/tokens, pull a lever and ker-plunk! Out pops a one-of-a-kind hand sewn book (or etc.). Well, today we got a note from the head honcho’s at Art-O-Mat saying that their vendors have been specifically requesting our little books…. We’re going to have to really get busy and make scads more!!! Wahoo!!!
