This process that your post has begun may in itself be defining the Artist's
Book. Could it be that that was your intent? I'm interested in the ways the
process has mimicked an artist's book...The project begins with a concept
which is then explored in various ways, sometimes with conflicting opinions,
then held together by a "thread", literal or figurative.
