Upcoming Publication from Phaidon/PPP Editions:
Artists Who Make Books

Working closely with esteemed art dealer Andrew Roth on a collaborative project with eminent book collector, Philip Aarons, IMAGING4ART recently completed photographing more than 100 artist-created books for a comprehensive survey, Artists Who Make Books.

Due out this fall, Artists Who Make Books will examine the range of the craft: from Xeroxed copies and hand-bound limited editions to elaborately printed volumes.
