Artist’s Statement: Knowing when a book becomes a piece of art is different for everyone; for me, it is when craftsmanship and form work with content and materials. For others, it may be when the concept of “book” is left behind. Making art is always an exploration of ideas and messages regardless of the medium, but I like to think that book arts has a quality that is unique. A book does not need to be beautiful or intriguing to function as a means of communication, and yet we are driven to do more than put words on paper.
