      Hi - the long awaited article on book arts has finally appeared! Tho
      cut down to only 2 pages (and all zine mention edited out) there are
      still a few great quotes and photos - this issue of Time Magazine has
      appeared on the newsstands today.

      "The latest trend is 'altered books,' volumes that have been gutted,
      painted and redesigned as art pieces."

      "Part of the fun for hobbyists who are discovering their inner
      bookmaker is the hunt for materials, which leads them to flea
      markets, old attics, and of course, the Internet."

      "Increasingly, artists from other media are gravitating to book
      arts. Their works, which are showing up in gallery exhibits and
      craft shows, are commanding hundreds of dollars."

      There are a few interesting photos in the article - one true
      accordion book, uses an actual vintage accordion and the artist
      attached vintage photos to some of the folds. Plus, books in
      miniature are created in the form of a billfold, keychain, fan and
      other purse accessories!

      How exciting to see these book arts in a National magazine. This
      ought to stir up even more interest and sharing in the creative field
      of book arts!

        Just wanted to let you know that the "Real Accordion Book " that is featured
        in the article in Time Magazine (Nov 11 issue) is made by Peter and Donna
        Thomas of Santa Cruz. We were happy to be in the article with a fine photo,
        but were sad to see that no credit was given, no mention of our names by the
        photo.... Go take a look!
