Would You Download a Free Artists’ e-Book?


I had seven days to create a book. Here you followed a work in progress. We were going to see if in a week I had a finished product. for Sketchbook Project 2013.  If not  – zilch. Today is the day I must have it in the mail going to Brooklyn, New York. The book isn’t finished , but I wouldn’t say I have zilch. There are some interesting pairings happening. I have the beginning of an Artists’ Book.  Right now it is  a traditional 7″ x 10″ codex book. But the opportunities for change are endless.  Check out this website about Artists’ Books. http://www.philobiblon.com/isitabook/bookarts/index.html

The book was going to be titled, Chairs, but now I’m thinking the title will be Sit. I’ll probably add some text, maybe just a few adverbs thrown in. The readers will be the ones to interpret the book’s contents. It may be a one-of-a-kind Artists’ Book or a small edition of 30. The structure of the book will probably stay the same. Maybe I’ll make a small edition of Sit just xeroxing the contents, binding it or stapling it together in order to sell  it on Amazon.com for a very reasonable price.

  1. Looks like it’s going to be a very interesting book, Carla. I like the title Sit – excellent. Good luck in getting it all done. And, yes, I would download it for free – but rather pay for the book. 🙂


  2. Hi Otto
    I have decided I have a good beginning. There are a lot more chairs out there and “sitters” I’ll keep working on it. Thanks to the Sketchbook Project the book got its beginning.I like the title.Sit, also. Thank you Otto. See you over at your post!


  3. hi Carla, it’s a wonderful book – but I enjoy online websites – e-books do not have so many readers like websites – so, it’s hard to earn money – better to make an exposition in a shop or cafe?


    • The websites are good. I like the interaction with people. I could do that. The last exhibit I did was then going to turn into a book but hasn’t yet.I’ve moved on. I’m thinking of printing this book, but then I need to get into the marketing part which is another whole ball of wax.
