"The Exquisite Corpse" - The collaborative

Just published in the September/October issue of Somerset Studios! This is a collaborative that was done involving 10 very talented people last year. Everyone has kept it under wraps awaiting possible publication. This has to have been the most exciting, most difficult and yet most satisfying collaborative I have ever been
involved in. I think all that participapted will agree. Somerset Studios was only able to select a few of the pages to show in their magazine, however, the book has been scanned/ photographed in it's entirety and can be viewed on my website here. Every participant received a copy of the finished book. As stated in the article, one of our members had a book lost in a book exchange several years ago. We knew from the start that was something we wanted to avoid at all costs, so we decided to make 2 extra books as a safe guard. Fortunately all went well and none were lost or damaged through shipping. We now have 2 extra books that we would like to auction off. The 2 highest bidders will be the winners. All proceeds will go to Bernie Berlin's "A Place to Bark", a private no-kill pet rescue. Email me to make your bids. Bids will be taken until the end of September. I will periodically post the highest bidding amount. So, be generous, it's for a great cause and it's an outstanding book.

A Big Congrats to you. Your article is wonderful and everyone did such a fantastic job. Was hoping Somerset was going to do the rest at some point. But, this is even better. Thank you.

This is great! I've always loved Exquisite Corpse games. And by the way, I so love your things on Etsy (how I found your blog).
