The government may not have any money left to fund your art projects, but Fiji Island Mermaid Press has stepped up to the plate and is offering 8 free mini books by book artists for you to download. The files are provided in pdf format, then you print them out and assemble them. How cool is that?
Most of the books are bound using the french fold. If you're not familiar with this simple binding, you'll find directions on how to do it included with several of the downloads. While you're visiting Fiji Island's website, click around and enjoy some of the many visual treats they offer throughout their site. BTW, if you want a bonus free book, check out the 2008 artist book listings and download Body Language.
You can claim your stimulus package at Fiji Island Mermaid Press. No pesky forms to fill out, no empty promises to stop making sub-prime books, it's free and it's fun! Perhaps you'll make a little box or slipcase on your own to house this collection, or better yet, you may be inspired to create your own artist book. Enjoy!
