I first saw Stephanie's work at the Castleberry Hill Art Stroll in Atlanta. I'm moving home to London next week and this is one of the main events which I will be sorry to leave behind. You can see more of Stephanie's work here.

I love Cara Barer's book works, they're so raw. She soaks the books in water to give them a "new shape and purpose". Cara mentions on her website that no important books are damaged during the making of her works, an issue I want to address later this week.

These pieces are by Abelardo Morell... ugh... delicious!

I came across this while reading about Brian Dettmer's work. Some of the books on this site look like they simply have gild edges, but as you start flicking through them an image is revealed.
