art book - mixed media on stiffened fabric
altered book - mixed media on/with stiffened fabric
When I was in art school more than a few years ago, I loved making books, and I don't know why I didn't make any afterward. But, now that I've made two, I suspect I'll make some more in the near future.
One thing I don't know anything about is where to find shows that are specifically for art books. The altered book is already scheduled to be in a show called A Novel Idea at the Hampden Gallery Incubator Project Space at the University of Massachusetts Amherst starting in December. I'll keep my eyes open for opportunities for the other one.
