The G4G Gift Exchange Books
The G4G Gift Exchange is an integral part of the Gathering 4 Gardner meetings.
Each attendee is asked to participate in the G4G Gift Exchange. For the past Gatherings we have exchanged gifts, papers, puzzles, and other interesting artifacts between participants.
There are two ways to participate in the Gift Exchange. Participants either prepare a Physical Exchange item (typically a puzzle, a magic trick, artwork, or other physical artifact), or they submit an original article or paper to that conference’s G4G Exchange Book.
The G4G Exchange Book is for those who wish to submit papers as their exchange gift and also for those who wish to include descriptions, instructions, solutions etc. related to their physical gifts. The book is “self-published” in that the contributor pays for his or her own submission on a per page basis. The length of submissions is self regulated by content and the submitter’s budget. For example, the G4G7 Exchange Book (produced in 2006) was over 700 pages in 2 volumes. The longest submission was 55 pages and the shortest 1 page.
Copies the G4G Exchange books are published by the G4G Foundation and are distributed to conference attendees later, after all submissions have been received and the books are manufactured.
