Get your swerve on with this inquiry into the uses and utility of the
artist's sketchbook, a venerable tool with the dexterity to act as
planner, journal and muse. Produce a single section structure by fusing
principles of basic bookbinding with generation of IDEA and OBSERVATION.
Manipulate content to enhance flow and connection, and expand the notion
of the book as a free-form object. A second, more formal structure,
built from the ground up, incorporates more advanced techniques and
allows the flexibility needed for spontaneous play. Count on getting

Timothy Ely-aka, Mixmaster Scrap-began making books as an errant child.
Interest in UFOs, alchemy, comic books, bones, and arcane religious
artifacts led him from painting and design work to bookbinding. He
received an MFA in Design from the University of Washington in 1975.
Presently, Tim makes unique manuscript books and teaches the art of the
book nationally. He is represented by Granary Books in New York City.
His books are in public, private, and secret collections planet-wide.
