City of the World: Call for Participants!

Current participant count 81

This email went out to all my printmaking friends at the end of 2010

Read all about it:
EVERYONE INVITED! The City of the World shall be built in 2011!!!
Sign up is open now until end of January 2011. Deadline for returning a very small carved block is December 2011.

As the page says, monumental puzzle projects are a collaborative effort among printmakers world-wide to compose an awesome print with little effort on the part of each printmaker.
Basically, each printmaker receives a smallish block of wood which fits neatly into the overall puzzle design. Each printmaker carves their block, returns to the coordinator and receives in turn a huge print containing the creations of printmakers from all over the world.

I am extending the invite to other groups so if you have your own group of printmakers, everyone is welcomed.
Please send me questions/comments directly at 1000woodcuts AT gmail DOT com

PS For those of you who have never done one of these before, here are the pages from the previous Monumental Puzzle Projects:

Once more, the information page outlines requirements, sign up form, and all the details.
