I picked up my new copy of "War and Peace" tonight at the local bookstore, the translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky which was published in 2007. I chatted with Evan, the young man behind the counter and told him about this project. He is working his way through Tolstoy and hopes to culminate with "War and Peace". He promised to check out this blog and post a comment. Our first reader! Lulu texted today to say that she is on page 54. Lynn is going to read this new translation, as is Lucy.
The first 6 collages don't really work together so well, but Lynn made me promise not to make any changes until we finish.
Lynn has been collecting new materials this week, I have purchased a huge quantity of Mod Podge. We are ready to rock in the studio on Friday!
I will try to post 1 collage each day and write a little about our group process. I am inviting the others to write, too. Maybe they're still a little shy! -Lola
