The rules were simple
- We assigned groups of 6 artists with members from each of the three organizations: San Diego Book Arts, Bay Area Book Artists and PaperWorks.
- Participating artists were current members of at least one of the three organizations.
- Each member of each artist group will make a book of 6 pages (maximum size 4” x6” closed; and ¼” thick open when filled), set the theme of the book, fill the first page, and mail it to the next member.
- Each book will travel through all of the members of the group and eventually return to the originator to add a cover or finish it in any way they want. Any materials or artistic style will be acceptable as long as it meets the size requirement.
- The books will be moved to the next member by 10 days after receipt so that the full project should be complete by the end of October.
