Daily Constitutional: A Publication for the Artist’s Voice, vol. 1, no. 1 (Winter 2006, $4.28 paper), edited by John Henry Blatter, includes personal essays, tomes about groups of artists, an article by Jessica Slaven about annotated grocery lists, dog walking diaries, manifestoes, and the obsessive cataloging of ideas and resources by Jason d. Szalla, whose cataloging sheets are interspersed among these 15 other artists. Since the mission of this publication is to provide an outlet and forum for the individual artist’s voice, it succeeds with great aplomb. In fact, this is a collaboration and that makes it quite different from the isolated solo artist who works in the studio and finds a show or two. These artists express themselves with distinction and with skill, humor, and sense of audience. This is the bargain of the year, and highly recommended for all artist book collections of multiple publications. Hope there are more issues from Florida.
