I am pleased with the illustrations in this attractive covered book. However the content is only in pictures with the artists names; there is no instructive information to help one construct a like book.

I enjoyed and enjoy this book, keeping it on my coffee table and perusing it whenever I have a moment. Can be looked at quickly and superficially, or be studied with attention. It brings imagination to my day.

If you're interested in Artists' Books, this is a fascinating survey of recent work, beautifully presented and covering an amazing range of book styles. It opened my eyes wide to a genre that I'd only dipped my toe into before.

My two minor criticisms would be, firstly, that the comments about the artists were given at the back of the book and were therefore a long, and rather inconvenient, way away from their work. Secondly, it would have been interesting to see more examples of work from outside the US as I've previously come across several artists making books both in the UK and in Australia.

Well thought out, for the beginner as well as the experienced. An insight to many artists, some you will love but a few you will hate, but thats good makes you think what you could do better otrworse!

Old binder no longer working in the craft, bought as a reminder of what I used to do years gone by. Wonderfully illustrated catalogue of pieces and that is what it is a Catalogue, what it is not is a manual of binding technique. If that is what you are after look elsewhere an experienced binder will get inspiration from it and be able to produce work based on their own experience of materials and technique learned over years. A novice might be amazed but confused but at the price it is still worth owning for the sheer joy of the illustrations.
