Synopsis: Interest in bookbinding and the related arts has exploded in the past decade, inspiring artists to explore the unlimited possibilities of the form - and delighting collectors, crafters, and gallery owners. This new and provocative on-the-page gallery, richly illustrated with hundreds of breathtaking photographs, will appeal to that same large and discerning audience. Theyll appreciate the artistry of a finely tooled leather cover, embellished with traditional gold-leaf lettering; the intricacy of an exotic Ethiopian binding with a show-stopping open spine; and others that resemble mysterious puzzle boxes, or books that curl, hang and swirl. The sublimely talented contributors all put their finest work on display: Jeanne Germanis Cloudspeak showcases her own handmade papers, made from such varied materials as recycled denim, thistle, and other plant matter. Chris Bivins codex-style volume features curious, tiny, found objects. One of Laura Waits untitled pieces utilises a handsome raised-cord binding to connect a pair of stained-cedar covers with abstract aluminum letterforms attached. A beautiful collection to awe and inspire.
