This digital collection was a collaborative book arts, writing and journaling project for the people of south central Wisconsin. The book collection was originally hosted by the South Central Library System (SCLS), and produced by the Bone Folders’ Guild (BFG), a book arts group based in Madison. This project was supported by a Madison CitiARTS grant.
The BFG book artists created sixty handmade blank books. Each book was catalogued into each of the sixty libraries in the South Central Library System. Unlike other library books, patrons were invited to write, draw, paint or collage in the books, producing community-wide collaborative works of art. Members of the Bone Folders’ Guild who created the Sixty Books include: Suzanne Berland, Susie Carlson, Carol Chase Bjerke, Nan Killoran, Laura Komai, Kathy Malkasian, Tricia Schriefer, Karen Timm, Alexis Turner, Marilyn Wedberg, Carey Weiler, Kristin Yates.
