This ends the first set of signatures for the Oh Baby visual art journal. I still haven't scanned the second set, but as soon as I do, I will post them. The second set also has 48 pages. Because I had company all day yesterday, I was sure glad I had these pages scanned and ready to go. I'll be showing some of the fun we had in Monday's post.

Do you love altered books? How about art made from books. Even better, how about functional art made from books? How about book titles as part of art? Do you love it when I feature men's art as my blog pick of the day? Then you are in luck. Jim Rosenau of Berkeley, CA in the US makes This Into That. You'll laugh, shake your head, or simply be amazed at the pieces you will see when you check out This Into That, my blog pick of the day.
