The most recent Fiji Island Mermaid Press Book of the Month club mailing was a bit different from the typical "book". On the envelope was a linocut of a howling dog, with "Rex Howls At. . ." in pencil. The envelope contained another linocut, titled "The Moon".
This is my 13th year of sending out little books. That's kind of nuts. This was the first one that really wasn't a book, but it was a little narrative sequence of sorts, so I guess my subscribers will forgive me.
Another thing they seem to forgive me for is my chronic tardiness. The Book of the Month club has never actually succeeded in sending out a book every month. Ever. But I always do send people 13 books over the course of their subscription, so I guess that's ok too. I'm thinking of changing the name to the "FIMP Something or Other in the Mail Once in a While Club".
I'm delighted to have my linocut "Baba Yaga" included in the 2013 MAPC Juried Members Exhibition, which opens tonight at the McDonough Museum of Art, Youngstown State University's Center for Contemporary Art. The opening reception is from 6 - 8 pm tonight and is free and open to the public. Exhibition juror Anita Jung will give a lecture starting at 5:30 pm. If you're near Youngstown Ohio tonight, you should go see the show!
