Re: Definition Artist's Books

Dear All,

Let the definitions begin and end with the Book. Artists have countless
venues for expression, yet "we" have chosen Books. This choice
originates from love of the form and respect for the power and
flexability of the form.

Books communicate.

Whether artists uses the form conventionally, or tweek it one way or the
other, intrepretation and inspiration comes from a deep connection to
"experience" with books. Artists add depth and breadth to the defination
of the form. As with all aspects of art there are those who will push
the envelope. But human beings look for meaning everywhere...that is why
we make art in the first place.
