"Fleeting Pages" and FIMP on Flickr

I am participating in "Fleeting Pages", a great project taking place next month in Pittsburgh. Fleeting Pages describes itself as "taking over (taking back?) a space, left empty by a failed big box bookstore, for one month, starting MAY 7th, and filling it with independent & self-published work of all kinds, book arts, workshops, and events. All revolving around written self-expression."

The location is the former Borders bookstore in East Liberty. There are currently more than 100 small press publishers, writers, and artists who will be participating, with more coming in all the time.

You can learn more about the project at their website:

And if you are (or know) an artist making books, or a writer writing books, or a publisher publishing books, there's still time to submit work to this event.

I've also been busily uploading FIMP's archive of tiny books to Flickr - you can see all of the artwork from 25 of the tiny books at:

Eventually I'll have the majority of the 106 (and counting) books available online, so you can browse the complete results of a misspent decade at the Fiji Island Mermaid Press.
