1,000 Artists’ Books
It’s real. It’s really real.
I submitted my entry in July of 2011, so you can imagine how long I’ve waited for this day. I just couldn’t allow myself to believe that my work was included until I saw it for myself.
I can breathe now!
1,000 Artists’ Books includes work from some of the top book artists in the world. I’m so very honored to be included in such fine company.
The publisher describes the book better than I ever could:
The book is a timeless art form, one that is as alive today as ever before, and artists continue to explore and explode the boundaries of what a book is and can be. In this beautiful collection, you will experience close-up various aspects of hand-crafted books: covers, bindings, scrolls, folded and origami structures and books made from found objects. You will find richly illustrated and calligraphed pages as well as books created from a variety of printed processes. Ingenuity and creativity abounds in this carefully curated collection of both historically important and modern works.
My one complaint with the book is that they didn’t include the title of each work with the photo – you have to flip to the back of the book to get this information. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful book and definitely worth adding to your library.
