Artist’s books have become a wonderfully varied source of creative expression. The styles artists and craftspeople dream up to create in the form of a book seem limitless. In truth, however, every artist’s book falls essentially into one of three classic forms or categories. Once you learn these basic forms, each can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Join Dea Fischer and learn how to construct each of the three basic forms to enable you to start creating. The only limit is your imagination.
