GuestBook 1998

1999 / Silverberg in collaboration with 10 ‘guests’

Edition of 15

Aware that the many visitors we regularly host are opportunities missed, I came upon a splendid solution: to invite ‘guests’ to ‘sign’ a guest book cum artist book, by collaboration on one of its pages. I make paper specific to each ‘guest’ and they create something in response. I sent out 15 leaves of paper to each: when 10 participants returned their contributions, each received a set and I designed and produced an artist book with the remaining copies.

GuestBook 1998 is the first in this series, with visitors from 3 continents, with a range of ages, talents, etc.
