Lately I have been creating many artist books. Printmaking and book arts share the same birth mother. Artists books can beautifully showcase a suite of prints; types enrich the work graphically. Sometimes the work is type driven, but really to be thought of as mark-making. Books substantially aid me as printmaker, provide context, impart rhythm, and provide a tangible dimensional experience.
In employing traditional and current methods of image and book making the results connect me to our past while allowing me to speak with contemporary relevance.
