Re: [BKARTS] bookart



Thank you, Michael, you nail it. I know that many booksellers they can't sell a beautiful bound book if the content not is interesting to the customer. Some are buying beautiful books with no contents, but it is because they mostly are going to be used as diaries, memories, drawings, photos aso.

(more complex, deeper meaning, more significance, greater analytical
thought) than its structure. Otherwise it is sculpture, meant to convey

message only as structure.
