Description

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 print processes. Ingenuity and creativity abounds in this carefully curated collection of both historically important and modern works.
