Over the last view years, I have been introduced to the obscure yet beautiful world of bookmaking. As an ancient form of art predating even the extensive progensis of painting, the book as a form of art has proven to be a major yet unappreciated craft. From the various papers used to the many abstract binding processes and methods, bookmaking has found a place in my practice and is something I continue to explore and experiment with. Utilizing vintage materials, I attempt to pair modern issues through a craft centuries old.
