Hey guys...I am pretty new to writing. I have been following this site for a while now for advice but never became a member until recently. I am not really looking to get published but still want to improve my writing and maybe do some self publishing. I am pretty interested in bookarts and just making stuff and building things in general so that seems like the most rewarding route for me. I am actually as new to bookarts as I am to writing though. I also want to do a zine of shorter pieces more regularly.
Welcome to the madness. It sounds like you are in the write place.
Book arts huh?
So do you draw?
Hi flite. Yeah, looks like you made it to the promised land, kiddo.
Wade in to the forums and the workshopping, you'll most likely love it.
Like Chester, I am also interested in what exactly you mean by book arts? You mean crafting the books yourself? Binding and decorating etc? Or do you mean books of artwork?
Welcome... Dive in, enjoy, learn... Great site to get you started.
Iisaimassen! Sore wa koko de hentai-desuyo!
Hey there, welcome.
Welcome! I think you'll enjoy it.
Good to have you, enjoy the insanity.
Thanks for the warm welcome everybody. By bookarts I mean the traditional craft of Bookmaking. I don't draw, at least very well anyway.
Hi New! I'm Dave. Welcome to the Jungle... you are in the right place. My advice is to jump into the fray of the forums and workshops right away. Otherwise, time will pass and you'll be on the outside lurking... like me.
And when you said 'bookart', I thought of the art in the link below, which is pure awesomeness... unless this is also a comment on what books are actually good for at this point, which is probably a sad reality. But yeah, here is the link... enjoy!
