Yesterday my friend Laura Wait gave me a copy of a beautiful paperback featuring 40 book artists called Masters: Book Arts: Major Works by Leading Artists. Laura is one of the artists featured in the book- here is one of her spreads.
This is a gorgeous book full of photos of hand made book objects. Some look like books and some are more sculptural. There is also a bit of info about each artist with some quotes by them about their work. Here are Adele Outteridge's amazing transparent books-
And some neat bindings and and a patchwork book called Scrap Book II by Peter Madden-
Also featured in this book is the amazing Brian Dettmer-
And one of my favorite artists Beatrice Coron-
It's impossible not to be inspired to go and make things after looking at this art! I wish there was more time in the day....
