I thought, I’d introduce a new category here on this blog: Webfinds Wednesday. Everyone who has blogged for a while will know that this is something bloggers need every now and then: A new line of posts that keeps you blogging and keeps you focused. Sharing webfinds is far from a new thing, but hopefuly I’ll be able to digg out some new and entertaining sites and artists for you.
For to give me a chance to make this really happen more than once (you all know my busy schedule), I thought I’d make it into a monthly thing, rather than weekly. So I shouldn’t call it webfinds WEDNESDAY; webfind of the month or something like that would probably be more appropriate. – But alliterations are such a nice thing in a blogtitle, and so I am going to keep it. What is more, there will also be a Follow-up Friday – next week. So, here you go, the first webfinds wednesday:
Today I want to show you Nina Kaun and her website. I found her recently while browsing lists of exhibitors for a book arts fair, and think her website looks really interesting! She is a book artist who bound and made one of her books (final work as part of her university degree) completely by hand, but mainly publishes through rotopolpress, a small independent press located in Kassel, Germany. Although her latest books are offset printed in editions ranging from 500 to 3000 copies, the books still retain a distinct artist book quality. She let me know that she mainly works with screenprints and collages for her original illustrations. However, when you browse her website, you will see that especially from her smaller booklets, some seem to have been drawn by simple pencils or whatever came to hand.
I hope you’ll pay her website a visit, and enjoy her illustrations. If you do, look out for Follow-up Friday on this blog next week for a short interview with her.
