Welcome to the blog for the "BY THE BOOK: Creative interactions with literature" show.

This is the place to find more information about those special items you've discovered tucked in the pages of select books in the Port Moody Library. Please feel free to leave your comments and if you are inspired visit the "Participants" link on the show website and find out how to register your own creations!

If you have found something you may keep it and we suggest that you make a small donation to the library in return.

If you would like to suggest a book, book / book art related website, or comment about the show in general please email pmlbtb@gmail.com and your message will be posted on this blog.

If you love a book set it free

Here are some interesting art / social projects with books let loose into the world:

A journal project which tracks both personal and multi artist/author journals which are either left in a specific location or travel - it's called 1001 Journals but they now have over 2000 in their database and a show at SFMOMA.

bookcrossing.com is a project that tracks books set loose in locations all around the world - none currently in Port Moody but a few have been released in Coquitlam within the past 2 weeks. Set a book free and check the website to see where it ends up!
