it was amazing

This fabulously illustrated book shows the extraordinary breadth of what can constitute book arts and infinitely stretches the possibilities of what constitutes a book for anyone less familiar with the genre.

I highly recommend this book to bibliophiles, art lovers and artists, and those who have seen some example of "the book arts" to get a survey of what the field entails, whether it be sculptures involving miniature books, altered books, zigzag books, books with sculpted hollows, alternate bindings, hand press, computer process, mixed media.

I acquired this book attending a reception for Jody Alexander for an altered book/mixed media/installation which simulated the world of one of her characters, Ruby B. So this book takes on additional significance, in that her section of the book is signed by her, and I have a hand made bookmark in it made from a sewn page of a German book.
