[BKARTS] Book + Art: Handcrafting Artists' Books by Dorothy Simpson Krause

Book + Art: Handcrafting Artists' Books
by Dorothy Simpson Krause, has just been published by North Light.

Focusing on content and suggesting simple and elegant ways of
presenting it in book form, it covers:
• An introduction to bookmaking tools and materials
• The basics of selecting paper and other substrates
• Traditional and digital ways to incorporate images and words
• Blank books and altered books
• Handmade book structures including multiple examples of single
sheet, glued and sewn books
• Covers
• Alternative presentations including unbound collections, boxes and
sculptural forms.

With Examples chosen from more than 50 books produced in the last
decade, Projects, Tips and Creative Explorations, Book + Art
contains a wealth of information designed to provide inspiration for
many bookmaking sessions.

Additional information about the contents and double page spreads from
the book can be seen on the Viewpoint Editions website.
