A few weeks ago I received my copy (actually that’s copies – I bought another two!) of the first Red Bubble Limited edition publication, In The Moment, and now that I have pored over every word and image in it, I thought I’d post a bit of a wrap up on my thoughts…
Upon removing the book from the post-pak I was immediately impressed. The waxy feel of the matt-laminate cover in the hands, just feels, well, nice. The design of the cover itself is cool too, giving a sneak overview of the good things contained, from crops of image’s, to extracts of writing’s, a tantalising introduction before it’s even opened.
Some absolutely awe inspiring writing and images featured throughout, from a great variety of artists and writers. The layout of the book has been beautifully designed by the folks at Vanzella Design, making every dp-spread interesting to look at and read, and has been beautifully produced, of a quality that you would expect to find on any art-mag stockists shelves.
To put your work up on the bubble and have great artists from all over the world give feedback and encouragement, and be able to sell and buy others work are just some of the great things about redbubble.
Being given the opportunity to have your work published, or shown in a real gallery, through redbubble’s on-going competitions is for want of a better cliché – Priceless.
Receiving ‘In the Moment’ and seeing my work in print was simply an awesome feeling, and it’s a publication that is just so brilliantly put together by redbubble, it really does make me very proud and honoured to be a part of this incredibly talented community.
Good luck to all those writers, artists and photographers aspiring to have their work published in redbubble’s next book, ‘Gaia – the Living Planet’!
