Found objects, whether natural or debris found in the landscape, evoke a dialogue between maker and object. Drawn, collaged or photographed, these objects and ideas are turned into a meaningful form: the book. Artists' books are simply books made by artists. Whether tactile or conceptual, they range in thematic content including the political, the sentimental, the instructive, or just about ideas of beauty.
