make sure you reserve one of the milkweed books with my name on it! (I'll even try paypal...... gulp..... for the first time)

I hadn't heard about 1000 artist journals.... is it out now? (I'll get the local independent bookstore to get me one!) ....I was lucky to hear about lark books '500 handmade books' in time to submit a few years ago - its nice to be included in the mix - congrats to you! (and the makers of the other 999) ooooo too much to want for in this post!
