THE BOOKMARK PROJECT
the idea being to share and spread knowledge of the project: people find the bookmarks, take them, and do or do not investigate what al Mutanabbi Street project is
enjoyed making these simple bookmarks and most importantly infiltrating them into my local community
starting with the shelves of my nearest supermarket, I secreted some bookmarks amongst World Foods
this is the third aspect of Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here that I have been involved with creatively and it is wonderful to participate in an international project of such seriousness; for one individual working alone the sense of helplessness and inability to make a difference can incapacitate.
I am always amazed and impressed by the enormous diversity of work made by the poets, printers, bookmakers et al who participate in al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here.
Long may it be so; let us honour that we are each component yet equal parts of this body of people.
