Published by Watson-Guptill; 1st Edition edition, 1st August 2005
Packed with valuable artists’ resources—galleries, bookstores, Web sites, book fairs, exhibitions, Creating Artists’ Books is packed with ideas, inspiration, and information from cover to cover.
Famous artists from David Hockney and Andy Warhol to Gilbert and George have created their own books—distinctive bound collections of work, sometimes variations on the popular altered-book craze. Now any artist can follow in the booksteps of these well-known muses, with the help of Creating Artists’ Books. Author Sarah Bodman, an expert on artists’ books, gives wonderful inspiration and practical guidance on printmaking processes for making books, digital output and computer-based books, assembling books with limited resources, and creating altered books. An invaluable appendix lists bookstores and galleries that sell and exhibit artists’ book; book arts collections, archives, and organizations; book fairs; related Web sites; and more.
