Where artists' books and the book arts meet online...
During a stimulating and successful day at ArtBookArt (HOFS), I was asked who I thought my 'influences' were.
I found myself at quite a loss because I have moved so far from any influences I might have felt to start with, if I ever did.

I make books because I have…Continue

I've launched an…Continue

When I tackled the project, I thought it would take a few weeks at most, and that I would be able…Continue

Another book related post on my ArtSmartTalk blog - this time about the Shahnama, the ancient Persian epic bristling with brave Kings, heroic deeds, fierce demons, and mythic battles.

The marvels of Persian illustration are on full display - magnificent craftsmanship, tiny delicate renderings of…Continue

Finally it started to come. The book as an object, a technology, a work…Continue

This article about David Walsh's new private art museum that is under construction in Hobart may confront a number of people but it also sounds pretty exciting as well. I particularly noticed this paragraph:
"Anselm Kiefer’s monumental Sternenfall/Shevirath ha Kelim, 2007, a haunting installation of lead books on steel shelves with broken glass, which was first shown at the Grand Palais in…Continue
