Unbound - A Good Thing - Joan Lennon

You may already know all about this imaginative venture, but if not, I'll let the Unbound people tell you about it in their own words ...

Readers and Authors ... Maybe there's something here you'd like to read. Maybe there's something here you'd like to write!

(Now, we are told that confession is good for the soul, so I will come clean and say that it isn't JUST my enthusiasm for all things Unbound that has prompted this post. There's a book on their books that is dear to my heart - 26 Treasures - The Book. This wonderfully creative project has had writers all over the country paired with objects in museums, then challenged them to share their responses in 62 words (a form now know as the sestude). Have a look at the link here to find out more, and if you like what you see, well, please join us in the pie chart wedge of excellence! As in, please subscribe ....)

So there you have it. Unbound. A Good Thing. Don't you think?

Great idea! Thanks for sharing this. A very different model of publishing although - remembering Berwicks "British Birds" - weren't books originally published by a subscription list?

Indeed they were, Penny. It will be interesting to see how well Unbound works.
