In the proces of making a book-car to wander about with, showing the books, selling the books. It will hook onto the bike, butte, it looks boringly black. Paint, waterbased gravity paint, to get the colours. Car was painted on the allotment in the open air. People remember mostly the drop photos, so went to get the car with the camera, to take photos of dew on the paint. Walking as bike has not yet the ‘towbar’. Just made it in time for the vanishing mist, almost there, forgot the key. Got the photos as a background for a logo. AND Walking back became just perfect, still water, morning light, floating catkins, perfect for the Salix book. Will safe them perfect photos for the book only as always. One day soon (hopefully) tourists will walk along the Windmills meeting me and the book-car. The date for publishing is postponed as it takes the printer longer, to get it prefect.
from one thing an other thing grows slowly moving into a new direction without certain intention just happened while going
From writing and creating that book comes more. Publishers have a hold, being weary in these times of corona. Bookshops closed for an other month at least. OK, well i hold my nose and jumped in the deep. silly, perhaps Today ‘Roos Boekjes’ was registered as a new publisher of Photo-Poetry books, on the 3-3 it will be official. (need to visit office in person) So people if you read this and you would like to create a Photo-Poetry book, than i can provide you at least with an ISBN number. Roos Boekjes could even sell your book via Dutch websites. Details have to be worked out, but the start is there. First of all my own Dropped Feather boekje, more to come, but not just my own books.
While writing the book, sorry creating the book, you come against all sort of short comings. The camera, the letter-fonds, the letter-colours, are giving me a challenge, which in a way are fantastic. A true part of an artistic process. Many pages in the book are now different again. On my way, walking while talking in my head (what will people think if i said it out loud) new ideas come to me. The poor camera has to deal with many impossible situations but some of the results are wonderful.
