It is… “What It Is”…

Right Now, Write now” (146)… write about Lynda Barry.

She “has worked as a

  • Painter
  • Cartoonist
  • Writer
  • Illustrator
  • Playwright
  • Editor
  • Teacher
  • and found they are very much alike”, has created and innovated a different form of an artist’s book a book.

Go, keep going! (use another piece of paper if you wish to) “…

This book is a

  • Collage
  • Journal
  • Comic
  • Picture Book
  • Notebook
  • Q and A
  • Instruction
  • Collection
  • Word Book
  • Hybrid
  • Story?
  • Mass produced Artist’s Book
  • or all of them, and… you can call it anything, you can read through it anyway you want, and you can go back and forth and delve into the book. I promise if you read this book several times, each time you would find something new, each time you would find something you haven’t seen or read before. This is not a book you can just glance through and assume you know “What It Is”. This is a book you would read everyday and you would still  not know “What it is”! Do you wish you could? “What do you think it would be like” (85) to know everything?

Start to wrap up!”…

What else can I say? I’m thinking…, but “can/does thinking exist without images” (68)? “Thinking is A Smelter” (68). So…

What else would I say?

OK, conclude“…

It Is…”What It Is”!

Finish!” (147)
