Dear Kestutis Vasiliunas,
thank You for informing me officially. I read steadily in the Internet – and we are very happy about that our artworks are accepted (the papermaker Jörg Heilmair and the bookbinders Schmidkonz and Brigitte Herrneder).
It is a great honour for us to be accepted and we say “thank you” and wish You personally – and for the project – a good start into 2012.

Dear Kestutis,
I wanted to thank you and the other members of the jury for including my book in the show. It is an honour to be included in such an important series of international exhibitions.
Also, thank you for organizing the various collage and book art exhibitions over the past years!
Happy New Year,
Nancy Hart

Dear Mr. Kestutis,
I am very disappointed because my art book has not been selected for your triennial. Only few French artists have been selected and in my opinion, since you are claim for an international competition, you could make more efforts for a selection more representative.

Too bad for me, but I appreciate you writing to tell me. I’ve had books in several of your previous exhibitions, and I’m sure to have something to enter in your next exhibition.

Hello Kestutis,
Well, thank you for the message. I was already in doubt if the books would fit into the theme. So no big surprise.
I wish you good luck with the preparation of next triennial.
All the best for next year to you,

Dear Kestutis:
Great news, I do thank you very much, also glad that  you find the work inside a good one.
Love is the ark appointed for the righteous,
Which annuls the danger and provides a way of escape.
Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.
Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment intuition.
Best wisher of Merry Christmas, and Many thanks,
Mohammad Shaqdih

Mr. Vasiliunas,
It was the last time I accepted to submit work for your Triennial. No need to invite me for the next, because I don’t want to maintain collaboration with you. Do I make myself clear?
José Oliveira
