Surfaces and Strategies – Publication Number One
I decided that for my first attempt with publishing my work, I would get my ‘TWENTYSIX BUS STOPS’ project printed via Blurb. The Bus Stop publication has a soft cover in response to Rushca’s work.
The printing of this Ruscha inspired book is quite successful in my view. I am pleased with the feel of it and the the compactness of the publication itself. I like that this is a tactile product. When I presented this in my previous blog post as a virtual book, I felt that there was a distance between me as a viewer and the content of the book. Call me old fashioned if you like, but I enjoy the touch and smell of a printed form. It is all part of the experience for me and I feel much happier with the printed version of the publication.
