That special project, followup

The journal project that I mentioned in the last post, will include handmade books from several other bookbinders that are all members of the Bookbinding Etsy Street Team. Here are some of the other contributions:

- Buechertiger
- CinderLisa Design
- Kristin Crane
- Minus + Minus
- Tickerfinch
- PaulinePaulette
- Roundtheworldin80pgs

There are sixteen books that will be "adored and adorned by creative women around the world." Each women will create a 4-6 page story in one of the journals, written and illustrated to show who or what made a difference in their lives and their advice for other young women. A short film will be made to tell the story of the books and the ideas, and the film will be premiered at the first TED Women's Conference in December and the books will be displayed and shared at a gallery event.

Good morning.

I have a question and a request for you.

You might not know it but I have a blog about bookbinding at http://tedorigawabookmakers.podbean.com and on this blog you can hear some audio - fictional, usually.

I would like to start interviewing bookbinders about their art, business, and mechanics of binding. I would like the interview to be an audio interview.

I would be honored if you would agree to be my first guest book artist. If you agree, I can explain how to record and send an mp3 file to me.

You weren't chosen out of the blue. I've been following your blog, subscribe to your twitter feed, and often see your photos on Flickr.

If you would like to be interviewed, you can email me at tedorigawa.bookmakers@gmail.com. Well, actually, even if you would Not like to be interviewed, you can tell me so at the same email.

Thank you in advance.
