1110/5 by MIEL Publishers

I've been meaning to share a little surprise that landed on my lap a few weeks ago but I had to deal with deadlines first. Finally, I can share! Last year, thanks to my friend Lisa, I happened upon MIEL Publishers, a Belgium based book publisher that aims to bridge the divide between trade books and artist's editions. What a brilliant idea. Jonathan Vanhaelst and √Čireann Lorsung are the talented and friendly team behind MIEL. They create high quality art monographs along with a twice a year journal, 1110, that features creative writing and beautiful art.

Artists shown here include Lisa Congdon, Cathy Cullis, Camilla Engman,
Elsa Mora, Heather Smith Jones, and of course, Lisa Solomon.
I had MIEL on my radar to contact them at some point when out of the blue, they contacted me to include my work in the Journal 1110/5. This edition arrives as a set of postcards, each artwork paired with writing that responds to the art.


√Čireann chose a detail of my Las Vegas Foreclosure quilt and sent the image to Neele Delschaft, whose beautiful writing was previously published by MIEL here. She wrote a beautiful response.

Hi Kathryn, thanks for your kind words! Very happy to learn more about these quilts, I didn't know what they were about when I responded to the picture, so resonating with me. Also very happy that you found my blog already. Very big smile here now!
