Today’s holiday Gifty Pick is the (selling-out-quickly!) Artist’s Books Ideation Cards by Julie Chen and Barb Tetenbaum. This idea-provoking double deck of cards make a very inspiring gift for any book artist, from the beginning paper enthusiast to advanced book binder.
The Artist’s Book Ideation Cards deck was designed as an aid to the book artist, to jump start a new project or inform one in progress. There are two decks in the set: Category Cards containing approximately eight cards in each of the seven categories (text, image, structure, paper, layout, technique and color) and 54 Adjective Cards of which three are ‘wild cards.’ Choosing a card randomly from each of the seven categories and five cards from the adjectives offers an unexpected recipe for a project.
