"expression by the artist predominates over conventions of bookmaking."

This works for me except one could create an artists' book that conforms to
"all other conventions of bookmaking" except intent. If your use of the
word "expression" implies intent, then I think were OK.  However if if you
mean "expression" as a visualization of a creative act, then I'm not sure,
but I think your close.
