Free For All - online downloadable mini books

Free mini books on line:

I am forwarding this press release from Marc Snyder of Fiji Island Mermaid Press

FREE FOR ALL Eight artists give the online visitor their artist's books.

March 16, 2009

The Fiji Island Mermaid Press is proud to present “FREE FOR ALL”. This online exhibition of artist's books, found at http://www.fimp.net/freef.html, invites the viewer to download and assemble the books on display. The eight artists who have created books for this exhibition are Pati Bristow, Ginger Burrell, Warren Craghead III, Marti Haykin, Adele Henderson, Robert Hirsch, Judith Hoffman, and Marc Snyder. The exhibition will remain online indefinitely.

Each book in the show is available as a downloadable file. The viewer typically prints no more than one or two pages of artwork and text, which are then trimmed, folded, and cut to create miniature books. The artists have provided instructions for the viewer for the entire process.

The exhibition explores the boundary between cyberspace and “the real world”, as the show is only finished when the visitor to the site has downloaded and assembled his or her own books. Essentially, the exhibit exists wherever someone creates their own collection of books.

Brief biographical and professional information about each participating artist accompanies the artist’s book in the online exhibition. Links to view more of his or her artwork are also included.
