The photographs of the bookmarks I created earlier in the year are now up on the website, and the exhibitions are about to open.
The series aims to encourage appreciation of artist books and was begun 12 years ago by Sarah Bodman of the Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England, Bristol. Participating artists each produce an edition of 100 signed and numbered bookmarks to give away through distribution boxes at venues around the world.
The bookmarks are divided into 100 sets; one full set remaining in the CFPR Archive, one being sent to each of the contributing artists and the rest divided and sent in distribution boxes to participating host venues around the world, for visitors to take.
See below for links to the website (photographs, statements and details, 52 artists), and links to the 10 venues where the works can be seen (and taken).
