I’ve been home since Tuesday night, and am still quite tired and so am blissfully relaxing. For the first time in six years, I’ll be home till late summer (except for a nearby solo show), and I’m very happy about that. The past nine weeks gave me a great deal to write about, but at the moment, I am just not in the mood for words, nor for the various manifestations of the internet. Mostly, I am thinking about the gardens, about what to plant and about being here to enjoy the growing, and of working in my own studio, which is lovely and cool in summer: perfect.
Brian Dettmer sent me this photo last week. It was part of a feature on books in the Sunday magazine of El Periodico de Catalunya, a large newspaper in Spain. It’s titled “Books with Interior Lives” and tells where to find Brian’s work in Barcelona, talks about the DCCA exhibition, and says: “Visual lesson for those who question the future of the physical book. Example: book-mushroom by Melissa Jay Craig.” Muchas gracias.
