I have been making artistís books for about five years. I especially enjoy the diversity of art and craft that goes into them, from writing and design to printing and binding. I like the challenge of making books that are innovative, but not so much a departure from the codex that they are not easily recognizable as a book. That they are fun is just a bonus.
