Artist Books widely evade a formal definition because of the complexity of the book form. Some Artist Books focus on historic process like fine binding, letterpress printing and the use of handmade paper. Some focus on narrative elements with or without a formal bound structure. Others are conceptually driven to deconstruct the elements of the book to form new and innovative structures.
Book Pages are offest printed. The printing plate was made from a photo I took in the Woodbridge neighboorhood in Detroit. Book Pages are bound together using the perfect bound (glue binding method) then pages are torn to reveal the page underneath. Because of slight variations in registration and inking, the "slices" of the photo build to form a whole image in a unique way.
MATERIALS & DETAILS
Chipboard is used for the pages giving the book a substantial feel. Pages are offset printed using oli-based ink. Book spine is glued using PVA glue colored with Acrylic Paint.
The dimensions of the book are 8" x 8" x 1/2."
