Amazon Description:

Discover what happens when you add artmaking and bookbinding together.

With Book + Art, explore the basics of surfaces, images and words in order to create provocative works of art with layers of meaning. Whether you’re altering a pre-made book or creating your own, here you’ll find both the instruction and the inspiration to get it done. In addition to learning mixed-media techniques—such as how to age paper, transfer images and make your own monoprints—you’ll be given step-by-step instruction for numerous book structures including:

  • Single-fold and bi-fold books
  • Simple and extended accordions
  • Perfect bindings
  • Side-sewn books
  • Single- and multiple-signature books
  • Boxes
  • Unbound collections
Add the art of the book and the book as art to your own artmaking repertoire today and start making your own meaningful artists’ books.
