The Book Artist

I am so inspired by fellow book artists, as they move through the process of constructing/deconstructing books, creating something new.  There is both joy and terror in cutting into/”defacing” a book — a structure I was taught to revere.

“And the words began to spill off the paper, the pages to escape the book, and her hands held the stories to the light and freed them to be what they will.”
