Book Arts Improv: Call #2

Book Arts Improv logo

Welcome to the second week of the 3rd Annual Book Arts Improv!

In case you’re new here, in a nutshell, the Improv is a four-week stretch of improvisational bookmaking. Depending on the content and complexity of the book, an edition of three or more will be created each week.

So here we go…wait for it…wait for it…this week’s call for suggestions:

  1. The real reason your check engine light came on.
  2. A retired Oscar category.
  3. An unusual superstition.

To participate in the Improv, just comment on this post with a response for each of the three categories listed above. I’d like to keep this suitable for all audiences, so please, nothing offensive.

I will accept suggestions until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, February 19th. On that day, one entry will be selected at random and not only will that person’s suggestions be used for that week’s book, but the winner will also receive a copy of the book.

Get those brains churning!
