Secret Sunday

Yes, yes. I know. It's a looooong story,

In the mean time, Seth Apter of The Altered Page, has begun the 4th edition of his zine, The Pulse. Over 200 artists are contribution their answers to a series of questions about their work, processes, and artistic lives. Every Sunday he has been publishing some of their secrets in entries he calls, "Secret Sundays." Yesterday he published one one of my secrets for art making resources: used books for their pages and for making altered books which I got from a branch of my local library.
So here are some of the books I found at my library on my last visit - hardcovers 50cents, soft covers 25cents: The book in Hebrew is A Little Town in Germany, by LeCarre, The Macbeth (the little volume all the way to the right) is not only notable for being published in 1889 with a signature of the owner dated 1890, the title on the spine was erroneously printed upside down. the little book at the top of the stack is Hamlet. The Fearful Passage (to the left of Macbeth) was published the year I was born.

Yesterday was Secret Sunday #5, check out more artists, their secrets from the first Secret Sunday and The Pulse at thealteredpage

P.S. I haven't forgotten my promise of a giveaway. It is coming and better late than never.
P.P.S. Best wishes for very Happy Holidays to all.
