This began as a place discussion on artist books. See the first five posts. This has become an archive for the almost 100 works in a show I curated, A Sense of Place in Artist Books.
I believe artist books are a place where artists pour out our inner geographical space into a narrative -a place home -a page of or container of moments, ideas, broad or long strokes of our lives. Why the artists texts that accompany work is important here. Not for the sake of describing work, more the thoughts before and between the lines.
Although some of these artists are very well known. This is my effort to carry each book and or artist further into the world. An electronic floating library as it were.
I plan to intermittently post other book artists outside my show as there are many other artists on place in artist books…
