Book in Sheets - Collaboration?

I have a "book in sheets" from one of my "fine press" artist's book
editions. I'm offering these as a "collaborative" venture. An edition of
thirty copies was originally intended and I have bound several copies.
I also had two copies bound by a professional binder. I have twenty sets
of pages. These were computer typeset.  Metal plates were made and
letterpress printed on BFK Rives. The sheets have text on two sides (five
sheets) 14 X 11+", a title page backed by the copyright, and a colophon.
        The book is: PYGMALION - THE ARTIST'S STORY.  I wrote the text.
The theme of the book is an artist's search for "perfection", the
"perfect" image (woman) and presentation. Thus, the project lends itself
to a variety of artistic solutions. In the books that have been bound I
used monotype prints. I would be willing to supply images - although I'm
not sure how, - or have the binder/artist interpret the text and supply
the images since this would be in keeping with the original concept, or
just use the text. My main interest is to have the idea for the project
move forward.
        I am willing to consider any collaborative arrangements, such as
making two or more copies and retaining one. I like the idea of having
several artists/binders, who find the text interesting, complete the
project in their own way. I have reservations about giving
these pages to beginning students.
        Please contact me if you have any ideas or would like more
information. I'd be glad to supply the text for consideration.
