Ronni Komarow, Curator

Artists have loved books for hundreds of years.  Though the artist’s book as a specific category of art is relatively new; it validates and celebrates artist’s passion for this format.  Artists who work in book-like formats love how a book feels, they love the concept of opening a cover and turning pages, and they love the gradual unfolding of a book’s content.  Book artists self-publish in unique formats that area specifically designed to illuminate and embellish the book’s meaning.

This selection of books is the culmination of more than 4 years of exhibiting by this group and represents an invitational of some of their finest work.  The work will be on display at LynnArts through November 2nd.
