Call for Submissions 2nd Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize (including STUDENT BOOK PRIZE) @ Bank Street Arts, Sheffield This is an Open Call for entries for the 2nd Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize. This is an open submis- sion prize and exhibition, held in conjunction with the Off the Shelf Festival, which takes place an- nually in Sheffield during the months of October and November. The Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize and Exhibition is open to makers of artists’ books in any format and from anywhere in the world. Entry to the exhibition and prize is free. Following the success of last year’s prize and exhibition, we are pleased to announce a number of initiatives to extend the scope of the prize this year. In addition to the main Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize, we will also award a Student Prize and a special Jury Prize. All books entered for the Student Prize will be automatically entered into the Jury Prize and the main Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize. Prizes awarded will be a combination of cash and exhibition of- fers. The format for selecting the winner of the SABP will be the same as last year. Visitors to the exhi- bition will be given a voting slip and asked to choose their favourite book(s). The new Student and Jury Prizes will be selected by a jury. The exact format of the Exhibition will depend upon the volume of submissions, although it is an- ticipated that all entries will be displayed in some form during the Festival. The exhibition will run for 4 weeks during October 2009 (exact dates to be announced). Closing date for submissions – 31st August 2009. For further information please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website www.bankstreetarts.com where full contact details can be found as well as further information about the venue, exhibition and submission procedure. Please note: submissions will not be accepted without the submission form which can only be ob- tained from the website or by e-mail. http://www.bankstreetarts.com/SABP_OpenCall.html
The first set just shows the entire images from 'statues of europe', which i think are a bit small and not so interesting. The second set, shows how ive cropped in on certain areas of each image which is a bit more interesting!
They would be cropped in a bit more because the circle shown is the outside circle, not the inner one.
Using a folding technique called a 'square flexagon' I'm making a mini book, silk screen - 2 colours. The images have to be cut in half and then joined up again in order for the fold to work - fingers crossed it does work!
This book has been going on for ages and after thinking it wasn't going to work, the first attempt sold really well in Bristol so this is the new improved 'row of houses' accordion book...3 colour silk screen on somerset paper.
