There are many books about Artists’ Book makers but all appear to be published in America and highlight American artists; I hope this new book will redress the balance.
In Praise of Beautiful Books’ gives each artist or fine press a page or spread to promote themselves with a short description and a selection of colourful images. Readers will be fascinated by the variety of styles used and unusual ideas created by these talented British artists. The book may help to demystify the art of hand made books and perhaps tempt others to create their own original, intimate art.
