it you were at the face 2 facebook party at round table books in winnetka, thank you so much! it was a lovely evening and it made me realize what wonderful facebook friends i have!
and of course, every party has to have an after party:
the party was called “guttenberg* to zuckerberg” and celebrated the many forms that books can take–our host the owner of the round table books arthur frank opened the evening by showing guests a goat skin bound 16th century book. with my genius friend o.j. dorson i was able to show off a permutation of the notion of books–namely, a multimedia book that tells the story of my year of meeting facebook friends. the next morning, i went to my neighbor caryl seidenberg’s home. she has a press called “vixen press”.
no, no, my neighbor caryl has a basement press where she hand prints her books. she has an intriguing and expansive definition of book. one of my favorites is “confection” which is really a candy box with word blocks in the individual ruffled paper candy holders.
today i am making arrangements for next week in new york meeting facebook friends! i hope i can figure out how to give another party as wonderful as the one at round table books! many thanks to round table, to the people at the grand grocery store in winnetka who donated the refreshments, and to the facebook friends who gave books. xxoo, arlynn
