A Few Words From Lisa...
...and gluebooks, everywhere
Hey there. Here's what I've been up to since my last message...
I’ve been gluebooking! I try to do a few pages at the beginning of every month, to sort of clear my head, before I start my next project. Right now, I’m working in gluebook #16, a tall, narrow junk journal, made from the flyers that get crammed into my mailbox every Tuesday. You can see all the pages I’ve done so far here, and pretty much every gluebook I’ve ever worked in here. Pack a lunch. There’s a lot.
Two years ago, during the pandemic, I did a rundown of all the gluebook information I’ve generated. Since it’s been a while, here it is again:
Discovering Gluebooks at Go Make Something - This is the first English-language article written about gluebooks, from 2004.
How Discovering Gluebooks Changed My Life - An article written ten years later.
What is a Gluebook at Mixed Media Club - A crash course on gluebooks.
After all that, I wrote a book, which I think is still the only book written about gluebooks. You can find Discovering Gluebooks on Amazon.
And I have an Instagram dedicated to my gluebook work.
Whew! That’s a lot of gluebooking. I love gluebooks, because they’re a no stress, no product, no technique method of learning how to arrange elements on a page. You literally need nothing that you probably don’t already have to get started.
If you’re looking for more gluebookers to follow in Instagram, I enjoy following Irene, Glue Rocks, and Giselle. (If you know of a female presenting artist whose work I should see, drop a comment, and I’ll take a look.)
OK, that’s it for me. Have a great week.
I am truly everywhere:
