Safe - Book of Love no. 1 - SOLD

- by Jen Osborn

This week's theme: The Artist's Book

The written word. Once only available to the few, these compilations were valued as objects as much as for content. In the 21st century, the production of books and paper has become cheap and easy. Though to many, they are treasures still. There are artists that honor and explore this fascination with books in their art. Whether through fabrication, alteration, or a combination of these, the artist-made book and its pages are a unique and beautiful form of expression.
