Brad Freeman has produced more than twenty of his own artist's books since
1980. His work combines photography, text, digitally manipulated imagery and
the creative use of offset lithography within the structure of the codex. In
1994, he founded the Journal of Artists' Books as a forum for critical
inquiry about artists' books. In the summer of 2003, Freeman collaborated
with Minneapolis artist Anne George on an artists' book entitled "Once
Removed" using the state-of-the-art production capabilities available at
Bolger Concept to Print in Minneapolis.  George was selected from applicants
nationwide to work with Freeman. She teaches graphic design at Art Institute
International in Minneapolis.  The residency was funded by a National
Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Creativity Grant.
