Invited article for the Journal of Artists’ Books, JAB 31, USA, Spring 2012, pp 16-23 Six new writers for JAB make their debut in this issue including Thomas Kromann, Anthony Leslie, Sarah Bodman, Alastair Johnston, Sarah Bassnett, and Albert Coers. From this group an international flavour can be detected with Kromann from Denmark, Bodman and Johnston from the UK, Bassnett from Canada, and Coers from Germany. Returning writers include M. Kasper, 7 Karol Shewmaker, 8 and Brandon Graham. 9 Two artists’ books are included in the envelope attached to the inside back cover. Aaron Cohick’s book is his first artist’s project with JAB, although he has written for us previously. 10 Also in the envelope is Kevin Riordan’s re-purposed artist’s book based on an earlier iteration as five artist’s pages in JAB30. Bodman explores the many faceted and vibrant artist’s book scene in Australia, as part of a trip to Australia for the Impact 7 Multi-disciplinary Printmaking Conference: Intersections & Counterpoints, organised and hosted by Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
