That's an amazing idea - and you only need to recruit one more US swapper to balance up the numbers - how hard can that be?  But I agree - finish up your US round-robin and then we'll talk about a Transatlantic Multinational All-Artists-Together Conglomerate Swaperooney!  Try say that fast after two glasses of red wine!

That's a fantastic idea!

That would make it very much like "The Book"...I want to say I found the link for that somewhere in the UK thread. 4 artists, one book. 2 in Brooklyn (I think) and 2 in Ireland (I think). We would still have our own books, though.

The only hesitation I could see would be the cost of shipping, but I think the final product would make it worth while.

The problem is that the same two people (the one sending to England from the US, and the one sending to the US from England) would get hit with expensive shipping every single time.  I suppose we could come up with a different route for every book so that everyone in the ring sent internationally just one time, but that would be kinda' complicated.

Not too very complicated. If we each have the same number of artists, we each send to a different person in the UK, and they each send to one of us. We send their books around in the US ring, while they send ours around in the UK. After everyone's had time with each book, each one of us sends one book back overseas. We can do the local ring either before we all send internationally, or after. Either way, you would just have two overseas shipments: one to send your book over there, and one to send an "over there" book back. Other than that, all your sending would be local.

That made sense to me. I hope I'm not the only one.  Cheesy

Oh see how smart you are! That means you get to organize it!  Wink

I'll organize this half of the world, and maybe either Stephen Weaver or Phizzy can take charge over there.  Smiley

I was just wondering if you guys had themes for your books. Like everyone does their version of your theme or is it completely 'free' and up to each artist?

I think most of us have decided to go with a "Letters & Numbers" theme. Basically the way we decorate our covers & first page will set the mood for the book.
