|Detail Image - Altered Book by rObfOs|
I was interested that the majority of "favourite" books chosen by the SLQ speakers were of a traditional and safe format, I thought they may have chosen books that pushed more boundaries. However, there is beauty in diversity, and I was extremely interested in their choices.
I find I am as unable to pick favourite books as I am to define them, but I would like to list a few book/paper artists whose collections of works have left lasting impressions upon me.
In no particular order (I hope you find something new & exciting to pique your interest):
Artist 1) Daniel Essig - Beautiful wood and metal sculptural objects as vessels for books
Artist 2) Julie Shaw Lutts - Collage & ephemera cleverly contained in book form
Artist 3) Marlis Maehrle - Light and delicate paper vessels
PS: Great idea, Amanda :)
