Books as sculpture. I love the whole idea— the tactility, the 3-dimensionality, and the intimacy— so I started creating these one-of-a-kind handmade artist books incorporating details from my gum bichromate prints. Some are made from cyanotype photograms. And now, when I make a handmade print, it somehow seems lacking. I can’t wait to find a way to fold and sew and bind that print into yet another fantastic art form.
