Hi all!

This semester Annie, Katie, and I are working on a collaborative photography/book arts project. Annie and Katie started this project on Facebook, and it has grown ever since. We would love for you all to participate! Here's what you need to do:

Step One: Read "The Bus Driver Who Wanted to Be God" by Etgar Keret. It can be found online on googlebooks. While reading, focus on the mental picture that arises when learning about each character. There are three characters; the Bus Driver, Eddie, and Happiness.

Step Two: Find people in real life who fit your mental picture of the characters. Photograph them!

Step Three: Send pictures to the email listed below.

Once we have received the submissions, we will compile the photographs into a book and send it to Printed Matter, a mega-store of artist's books.

Deadline for Entries: October 17th, 2009

All submissions must be made electronically.
