Books, Book Arts

       When a work becomes a book instead of something else, such as a series of images meant to be shown on a wall, the content has determined that a book must be made. The form it takes originates from the inside out. Book Arts afford the possibility of mixing media in many ways. My most elaborate book works have been culminations of large group projects that I designed and carried out over long periods of time.
