Jennifer Borges Foster, Kate Lebo, and a village of volunteers have assembled a completely hand printed, hand-bound, handsome journal in a box. Yes, in a box. Each year for the past three years, Jennifer Borges Foster has created a Filter journal from scratch, each one its own separate art object.
I love the energy behind this project and I am honored to be included along with writers such as Yusef Komunyakaa, Martha Silano, and Stacey Levine. This is a journal we will certainly hear more from.
Come out tonight to the Freemont Abbey Arts Center and celebrate book arts and bravado --- for in this Facebook age, creating a hand bound journal is nothing short of heroic. Of course these twenty-somethings aren't stupid, here is the Filter Blog where you can follow the assemblage and celebration if you aren't in Seattle.
