I'm guessing you might have an inkling by now that I'm also obsessed with images of the moon … I've always loved seeing the full moon, and, whenever I see one, I stop in my tracks for at least a few moments to bask in its round lunar loveliness.
Today while Nick was working I explored the campus library's arts and humanities book offerings. Since I wanted to learn more about book arts I decided to focus on artists' books. Artists' books, as defined by Lauf & Phillpot, are “books and booklets authored by artists.” I discovered today that what I'm more passionate about are book works, which are “artworks in book form” like some of the works I've pinned on my pinterest board. I know there are workshops and graduate progams out there to learn about book binding and the book arts. I've taken a couple of great classes through Cooper Union and the Center for Book Arts in NYC.
My dream would be to apprentice with an established book binder/artist.
But for now I'll continue to read and learn.
