The singular tenant of "Books Arts" is its lack of prejudice to any media!
The attraction and perhaps a germinal force underlying the rapid
acceleration and growth of book arts may be a reaction to that which is
"machine" made - but this does not mean that " machines" should not be
used to as an expressive form of the art. The human condition is language
based but without prejudice to the form of the language. Thus an art form,
especially that of the book, should and knows no expressive bounds which
are additive to the human condition.
