The book is a timeless art form, one that is as alive today as ever before, and artists continue to explore and explode the boundaries of what a book is and can be. In this beautiful collection, you will experience close-up various aspects of hand-crafted books: covers, bindings, scrolls, folded and origami structures and books made from found objects. You will find richly illustrated and calligraphed pages as well as books created from a variety of printed processes. Ingenuity and creativity abounds in this carefully curated collection of both historically important and modern works.

Peter and Donna Thomas are book artists. They live in Santa Cruz, California.

An author of various books on art techniques, home decor, and crafts, Sandra Salamony makes a living as an art director, designer, and artist in Traverse City, Michigan. Her projects and designs have been featured in magazines, books, and on television.
