I’ve chosen a unique format for the journal which accommodates the Artella style for quick prompts, intuitive responses, a combination of text and images, a mix of digital and hand drawn images, provide for short answers to prompts. The paper is 5 in by 14 inches, folded in half to give four pages. I will later bind these ‘signatures’ into a book. Meantime they are easy to modify, the order is flexible, and there are extra pages for afterthoughts.
