Re: [BKARTS] BOOK_ARTS-L Digest - 2 Feb 2007 to 3 Feb 2007 (#2007-34)



Not to be always a curmudgeon, but this listserve also serves serious
conservators and restorers of books, some of which are repositories of the
wisdom of humans, history, all manner of treasures which it is important to
preserve.  Aren't we glad that Leonardo's diaries survive?  Gazillions of
other examples exist, some as yet undiscovered.

Artist books are important in their own way, especially to the people who
create them, but they are not the only books on earth.

Yes - so the ideas are at least as long-lasting as the materials!

I'll SAY IT AGAIN:  If Ihad my druthers, I'd rather be make art that is
art than archival. Archival is an 'emperor without clothes' . Too much
space her is taken up with crafting and buying the right book supplies,
and it outweighs all other discourse as to what books express ....
exemplify as a genre of ART!
