The 2013 Honour Role.

So, as you are all probably aware by now, the final Issue of The Paperbook Collective for 2013 has been published.

It’s been quite a journey! Despite a few hurdles we have managed to put together five issues of this creative, collaborative magazine. Suffice to say it has far exceeded the humble expectations I had for it back in July. I honestly envisioned a magazine of perhaps five pages, mostly my work with perhaps one or two articles contributed by other bloggers. The response I have had to this magazine has been overwhelming, it has achieved exactly what I hoped to design: a magazine that showcases creative talent from across the globe.

Yesterday I spent several wonderful hours visiting as many contributor blogs as I could to write a little personal note of thanks for being a part of The Paperbook Collective in 2013. But there are several contributors who do not have blogs, and several that I couldn’t seem to find anywhere in the depths of the Internet. I guess blogs and domain names change rapidly in the space of a few months.

So I thought I would create an honour role of contributors for 2013, so that we might give them a round of applause across the globe. I also want to create this list for my own purposes, to thank all my incredible contributors and to marvel at the many different countries and cultures that are involved in the making of The Paperbook Collective.

thanks

So here it is, a list of each and every person who has featured in The Paperbook Collective this year.

What an incredible list of people.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in The Paperbook Collective this year, your support has made this possible.

To finish, I would like to share this piece of black-out poetry which instigated this whole crazy idea. It is what inspired the name The Paperbook Collective, and also what inspired the collaborative style of this unique magazine.

I was drinking wine one evening in June in front of the fire, experimenting with this new form of unfamiliar poetry, when this happened.

you’re now a raging success

it’s different

and its strange

but it’s a perfect space

for independent releases

an artists collective.

  2. This is a ‘raging success’! Thank you for your vision. The e-magazine and zine combination truly brings together the best of both worlds. *Raises a glass of whisky* To 2014. May it be as brilliant as 2013!

  7. I only discovered this now. I’m a bit sad to see I’m the only South African here. On the other hand, at least I stand out, hey? Thanks for taking a risk on this wonderful idea. May it take you to great places in 2014.

    • Thanks so much Kokkieh! You should feel proud to be representing your nation so outstandingly 🙂 Hopefully some of your friends will jump on board in 2014! Happy holidays 🙂

  8. It’s no wonder that The Paperbook Collective has been such a successful venture, Jayde. You express appreciation so well! I am honoured to be on your “Honour Roll” (and I just used the British-English spelling of that word twice!) I’m not going to let the holidays prevent me from submitting something for Issue 6! I wish you a joyous Christmas and continued runaway success in the New Year. –John

    • Haha nice use of the English spelling John!! It has been incredible to have you on board The Paperbook Collective in 2013, I can’t wait to see what you come up with in 2014. Happy holidays!
