This morning I was at this small gathering of book arts & letterpress nerds at Fort Mason. I enjoyed perusing Jennie Hinchcliff's zines & her collection of mail art. While I was at her table, another visitor told us how she received a china bowl through the mail without any packaging, her address written directly on the bowl. She claims it arrived intact! At the Bay Area Book Artists table I handled a hand-made alphabet book by Raven Victoria Erebus. It looks lovely but is actually quite distributing disturbing. Every letter of the alphabet is matched with a drug she has been prescribed to treat her Lyme disease.
