Sol LeWitt’s statement on artists’ books
Art-Rite Magazine #14: Artist’s Books (January 1976)
Artists’ books are, like any other medium, a means of conveying art ideas from the artist to the viewer/reader. Unlike most other media they are available to all at a low cost.  They do not need a special place to be seen. They are not valuable except for the ideas they contain.  They contain the material in a sequence which is determined by the artist. (The reader/viewer can read the material in any order but the artist presents it as s/he thinks it should be).  Art shows come and go but books stay around for years.  They are works themselves, not reproductions of works.  Books are the best medium for many artists working today.  The material seen on the walls of galleries in many cases cannot be easily read/seen on walls but can be more easily read at home under less intimidating conditions.  It is the desire of artists that their ideas be understood by as many people as possible.  Books make it easier to accomplish this. - Sol LeWitt

J’ai entamé en mai une collaboration avec le cdla, Centre des livres d’artistes de Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche. Durant un an, je réaliserai la carte électronique qui accompagne la newsletter mensuelle du centre, dont la deuxième vient de sortir. Chaque mois, une photographie prise le même mois d’une des dix années précédentes. Vous pouvez vous y abonner, ou la télécharger sur le blog du cdla.

Last May, I started a new project with cdla (Center for artists’ books in Saint-Yrieix-La-perche, France). During one year, I will conceive the e-card on the verso of their monthly newsletter. Each month, a photograph taken the same month during one of the ten past years. You can subscribe to the newsletter or download it on cdla blog.
This project is connected to Some Other Days. A Retrospective Calendar, 2004-2013.
