Today I want to invite everyone to join a wonderful project, I was recently told about it and I think it's a beautiful thing to be a part of: a book that travels the world collecting art from every place it visits.
The project was started by Traumfaengerin-Wish
with this idea: "I want to create a book that travels around the world, from one deviant to another. Each deviant can add his part to the book, a drawing, poem,a little story, photos, etc.
I want to reach every corner of the world with this book, to see how wide our network reaches, to let other people see how wide we are connected, to let them be able to touch, to hold the proof in their hands."
Two books are already traveling and a third book is on the making. 216 people already signed in, the books will visit 52 countries, and counting! Everyone is welcome to join and share some of their art with people from all over the world. Once the book is finished there's talks about getting it published!
I already signed in and I can't wait to receive the book, admire what everyone else has made so far, leave a little part of me, my art and my culture in it and pass it on to the next artist
it gives me a warm feeling of being part of something bigger.
If you want to be a part of the project you can do so by joining World-Travel-Book
, if you have any questions they have a FAQ entry
or you can leave your questions there.
Eager for more awesome community projects? You can also join Artcrossing
, both are dedicated to swapping art with other deviants
If you know of any more projects like this let me know!
