Here is some information about the book from the publishers:

1,000 Artists’ Books: 

Exploring the Book as Art
by Sandra Salamony, Peter and Donna Thomas
Quarry Books | June 1, 2012 | Trade Paperback

The book is a timeless art form, one that is as alive today as ever before, and artists continue to explore and explode the boundaries of what a book is and can be. In this beautiful collection, you will experience close-up, various aspects of hand-crafted books: covers, bindings, scrolls, folded and origami structures and books made from found objects. You will find richly illustrated and calligraphed pages as well as books created from a variety of printed processes. Ingenuity and creativity abounds in this carefully curated collection of both historically important and modern works.

Here are some other books I have made. More to come…
