About

In 2004, I wrote the first English language article about gluebooks at Go Make Something. That article, Discovering Gluebooks, led me on a 15 year journey with a glue stick. I've moderated groups on Yahoo, then Facebook, and now Reddit, about gluebooking. I've written articles. I've hosted collaborative projects and swaps.

And now, 15 years after that first article, it's finally time for a book. Because there is no book documenting the wonders of gluebooks, in all their various forms. If there's ever going to be one, I think I'm the person to write it.

About the Book

This book will be filled with everything I know about gluebooking. How to do it, why to do it, why it's so different from other forms of art, and how taking up the practice could make you a better, more thoughtful artist.

I've also asked a few friends to join me. Other artists who gluebook, who have signed on to share their pages. My tribe of dedicated postcard swappers, who are filling my mailbox right now with gluecard goodness. 

The current plan is a full-color, soft cover book. I'm starting with a goal of 48 pages, which is what I think I can fill with the stuff I want to write, and my own artwork. I anticipate that as I receive work from others, the book will expand. As the page count goes up, I'll let backers know via updates.

Rewards

The printed book. Softcover. Full color.

A handmade, 10 page book, made from letter-sized sheets of cardstock, filled with my gluebook work. Each page is an original. Each book is a completely unique work of art. Due to the obvious time constraints, I am only making a couple of these, so once they're spoken for, there won't be any more available.

Risks and challenges

This is my ninth Kickstarter project, so I'm very familiar with the time constraints and workload required. I've built plenty of time into my project calendar to ensure that rewards go into the mail on time.
