Interest in bookbinding and the related arts has exploded in thepast decade, inspiring artists to explore the unlimitedpossibilities of the form - and delighting collectors, crafters,and gallery owners. This new and provocative on-the-page gallery,richly illustrated with hundreds of breathtaking photographs, willappeal to that same large and discerning audience. They?llappreciate the artistry of a finely tooled leather cover,embellished with traditional gold-leaf lettering; the intricacy ofan exotic Ethiopian binding with a show-stopping open spine; andothers that resemble mysterious puzzle boxes, or books that curl,hang, and swirl. The sublimely talented contributors all put theirfinest work on display: Jeanne Germani?s Cloudspeak showcases herown handmade papers, made from such varied materials as recycleddenim, thistle, and other plant matter. Chris Bivin?s codex-stylevolume features curious, tiny, found objects. One of Laura Wait?suntitled pieces utilises a handsome raised-cord binding to connecta pair of stained-cedar covers with abstract aluminum letterformsattached. A beautiful collection to awe and inspire.
