Iskandar Jalil, When Clay Travels. International competitions, education and waiting.
Some time ago, months in fact I had been asked if I would be one of three judges for an international book binding competition. One is of course flattered and I agreed. It was only after agreeing that I realised that being a judge is with its ups and downs. More of this later.. but a day went with me and my fellow judges pondering books from the resolute traditionalist to the conceptual artists/performance book. Pleasant but still hard work
The following day was spent sitting in a meeting of an education committee. Nuts and bolts time.
The box is taking shape. All will be complete in a few days time. It has been a good.
