Additional notes: "I invited guest artists who visited Dobbin Mill to participate in a guestbook by making a set of Dobbin Mill papers, that considered their particular style & art practice. Each artist was requested to respond by working on the 15 sheets of paper sent to them, in lieu of their signatures.
I then designed an artist book with each guest's contribution, utilizing a favorite poem, The House was Quiet and the World was Calm by Wallace Stevens as the cohesive text. In recognition of the range of artistic expressions, I chose to construct it as a set of separate pamphlets in a clamshell, and the project functions both as a whole and in segments.
Guest list, in order of appearance: Francois Righi (France), Kim Berman (South Africa), Carola Willbrand (Germany), Erika Hibbert (US / South Africa), Käthe Wenzel (Germany), Veronika Schaepers (Germany), Renate Habinger (Austria), Richard Flavin & Ryoko Haranguchi (Japan), & Robin Price (US).
Each guest received a copy and the remaining 5 are sale copies."
