The Nacho Cordova Memorial Book is Complete!


Member since 14.07.10

Today, IPA is thrilled to announce that the Nacho Cordova memorial book has been completed and is currently viewable on Blurb: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2833220

The final book includes a selection of 49 images by Nacho as well as commemorative images, messages and thoughts from 60 members of IPA. For anyone who would like to have a copy, the book has been made available at cost. No profits will be made from the sale of the book. Instead, we simply hope it will serve to keep Nacho's art, his words, and his memory alive for all of us.

For those who are not familiar with the project, it began with the For Nacho group here on IPA where members contributed their images and words after Nacho's tragic passing. We then selected one image from each member along with messages, thoughts and comments, and combined them with a group of Nacho's own work.

The book was produced by volunteers from the community as a gift for Michelle Cordova and Nacho's family. And so IPA has sent the first copy to the Cordovas for Christmas - on behalf of all the artists here, with our thanks and gratitude.

As a finished book, it serves as testament to the generosity, intelligence and creativity that Nacho was so well known for, and illustrates the extent to which he affected all our lives.

As a project, it demonstrates the unique community that IPA has grown into, proving it to be a place full of welcoming, generous, and truly creative artists who gather here, not just for what they can get from the community, but for what they can give back to it as well.

IPA would like to thank the following, without whom this book would not have been possible: Marie Matthews, Cindy Patrick, Maryjane Sarvis and Elise Schreiber for helping get things off the ground. Jamie Stewart for curating the selection of Nacho's works. Alan Kastner for the written introduction. Clint Cline for book design and production. All the members of IPA who chose to take part and donate their image to this project. And to Michelle Cordova, for allowing us the use of Nacho's beautiful work.

And so let's all raise a glass this holiday season: For Nacho, for all the things that might have been, and for all the things that can still be with Nacho smiling down on us.

Cheers, old friend..
Wherever you may be.

With love and gratitude,
from Daria Polichetti, Nathaniel Park, and all the members of IPA.

Special thanks to Daria and Nate for making this book possible. It will surely offer much for Michelle, Phoenix, Tess and others in the extended Cordova family to reflect on warmly in the years to come.

The book also serves as a great way to keep Nacho's images and spirit fresh in our minds. That's both for us who knew and loved him, as well as for those who join the community afterward and find inspiration in the model Nacho set for us all.

Shine on, Nacho!
