We went to State Street in Madison to visit the mobile Sketchbook Project Exhibit. This is a project that has people, artists and non artists alike make and submit sketchbooks. They take the books submitted each year on a road trip. One can check out a book and get a second random book to view . They are all filed with a searchable data base. It was quite fun. I had searched for quilts, so the attendant added to my selection a book made out of cloth. At the front of the book was this quote in Latin:
This phrase fits the idea of Two Books, that Nature has a kind of design. You can see that design as the result of natural selection, you can dispute if there is any design, or you can see that behind the design is an artist.
I’d like to explore sketchbook making and keeping as a future Two Book Retreats course. Stay Tuned.
