Beyond Words: The Marriage of Art and Literature in Bookmaking



Beyond Words: The Marriage of Art and Literature in Bookmaking
A video by Anita Saewitz

BEYOND WORDS is a new documentary about contemporary fine art bookmaking.
This 27 minute vieo explores the collaboration of the writer, visual artist
and printer in crafting these remarkable volumes of text and image.

BEYOND WORDS looks at the fine art books published by Vincent FitzGerald
and Company. Interviews with writers, artists, papermakers, printers, and
curators offer unprecedented insight into this creative process. David
Mamet and Lee Breuer read from their own editions; actors Kevin Spacey,
Kathleen Widdoes and Milo O'Shea read from the literature of Kafka, Joyce
and Ibsen.

BEYOND WORDS provides insight into this unique art form, which dates back
to turn of the century Paris. For those who are unfamiliar with the
subject, the viedo will serve as a visual introduction to the intriquing
world of fine art bookmaking.

The cost is $103.00 incl. shipping...
