President Moe Makes Picks for July

Thanks for checking into the AAPA website, and please take some time to browse around! Here are some choices of note from the bundle for the month of July: 

Writing of the Month: Guest reviewer and AAPA Official Mailer Heather Lane tackled the bundle reviews with verve & vigor in the July edition of the American Amateur Journalist – proof positive that not only are the bundles entertaining but the reviews of the bundles are just as engaging.

Project of the Month: Nine-18-Thousanths Press gifted AAPA members with a gorgeously designed bookmark – now the tough choice is which book to grace with their beautiful creation?

Journal of the Month: For the second month in a row Gregory McKelvey’s The Ink Zone stands out as my journal of the month choice. #153 includes an article about the colorful art / craft of decorative illustration known as Rosemaling and artist Inger Johnsen. Rosemaling developed among my Norwegian ancestors, which made this essay even more intriguing for me personally.
