ArtLessons@BookCrossing Underway

The 61 books for ArtLessons@BookCrossing: 50 States, 10 Provinces: The U. S. Canada Project are on their way. One copy of Art Lessons: Reflections From An Artist's Life has been mailed to one person from each of the 50 states (plus the District of Columbia) and ten provinces. Thank you to everyone who has agreed to participate and to all that tried but missed.

It has turned out to be a lengthy process. I gathered names from responses to my posts here, on facebook, and on the Book Arts List. When there were still states and provinces to fill, I went online and researched book arts and arts in the various locations and sent emails out of the blue to artists, many of whom responded.

I designed labels for each book

and for the sealable plastic bags that Book Crossing suggested the books be placed in for wild releases which may be out of doors in public places.

Next I registered each book on Book Crossing so it can be tracked as it travels and wrote the Book Crossing ID number on each book, keeping track of which number went to which state and province.

Each book went into its bag

and then into an envelope with a piece of cardboard.

The envelopes were addressed, sealed, stamped and sent on their way. Should you be interested in the journey, go to BookCrossing, enter the ID number of the book from a particular state or province and see where it goes.

BookCrossing is a concept based on faith—that everyone will pass the book along. I hope it works and look forward to watching. And of course, if anyone who passes along the book feels she needs a copy of her own, so much the better.
