Artists’ Books


Touchstones Edition

“Touchstones”¬† Edition

“The book as a structure is the Trojan horse of art – it is not feared by average people. It is a familiar form in the world and average people will take it from you and examine it whereas a painting, poem, sculpture, or print they will not.” – Walter Hamady
