Journal 24

Yesterday I settled into a comfy chair at The Moat cafe for 3 back to back meetings with Inscribers. First up was Journal 24′s Inscriber. We chatted about the difficulties of naming pets and various ways to organise your books at home. This Inscriber for a while had them all arranged by colour, which meant that occasionally they went to op shops looking for 50c books with the right spine colour to enhance the overall visual of their library. Nowadays, this Inscriber organises it by which writers might have been friends with which other writers, assuming they’d all been alive and in the same pub at the same time. I like to organise mine by subject and then height, tallest closest to the edge and sloping down to the middle, which means I can stick more stuff on top of the books. My shelves are rather cluttered,  there’s a lot of tiny art and sculptures which live all through out and inbetween (and on top of) the books.

Next, I received a flying visit from Journal 1′s Inscriber. This Inscriber took their Journal on a world wide adventure with them, Journal 1 has been to around 5 different countries! This Inscriber was heading off to do something they’d always wanted to do, but they were running late for it, so with promises of coffees next time, they had to scarper!

So now, Journal 24 and Journal 1 are ready to go out and be found by someone in the Melbourne CBD next week…
