Are you Book Enough?

Circular hand made book, are you book enough 3

‘Are you Book Enough?’ Editions printmaking studio, Seattle have set this beautiful challenge.

Now in its fourth-year ‘Editions’ asks bookbinders on an international scale if they are ‘book enough?’

The challenge is free to take part in and anyone can join. The only requirement is that high-quality images are posted on social media with the relevant monthly hashtags.

As this will be my first year undertaking the challenge I have decided to post three books every quarter. (It’s taken me a while to update this blog because there is nothing quite like a global pandemic to get in the way of bookbinding.)

If you would like to follow my progress pictures and informal updates please follow me on Instagram at JaneEBennett.

Discover – Autistica

Autistica Discover Conference 2019

I am excited to announce that I will be showing new work at the 2019 Autistica Discover conference.

‘Discover is the first national network for autism research, connecting researchers with autistic people, families and professionals.’ – Autistica

The 2019 Autistica Discover conference is being held at the Reading University on the 27th of June and tickets can be purchased here.

The work I will be showcasing at Discover 2019 will bring to life aspects of my own ‘self’. The works will be a truly intimate self-portrait; exploring narratives of communication, functionality and the basic human need for empathy.
