I was interested in thee books about binding your own books, but your blog title totally and thoroughly disgusted me! It is sad to see that there was no other way to express yourself without profanity.
Counterpoint: It is unfortunate that you let a 4-letter word stop you from looking through a fairly extensive archive of art by talented people hailing from all corners of the world.
Here are some interesting thoughts (as well as a small history lesson) on the word “Fuck" that one of my followers sent in a while back. It’s well worth a read, and considers why the 4-letter profanity gets under people’s skin.
For me as individual, fuck is just one of the many colourful words I enjoy using to express myself in every day life. I’m Irish, so I for one fucking love the word ;) x
Hi! I'd like to know more about the person who runs this blog. Are you a book artist yourself? A librarian? Are you American, or maybe British? What book arts circles do you run in?
Hello! I’m a human (of the female variety), Irish, and a recent graduate of a book arts & design degree.
I’m a multi-media artist (although not producing as much art as I ought to be) and I currently work/write for a (non-book arts related) magazine. I’m not affiliated with any particular groups or circles- although I embrace all that promote the world of book arts.
Simply: I created FYBA in my late teens because I’ve always loved anything that combines the power of words with beautiful and effective art. :) x
