There’s a lot of discussion about what an artists’ book can be. Whether it’s a unique sculptural object or a widely distributed multiple, whether it uses words, pictures (or a bit of both), whether it’s freely handled or carefully preserved, a bookwork is a perfect fusion of form and content. Erwin Huber, Debra Frances Plett and Ann Stinner will talk about their often misunderstood medium, their creative processes and why the artists’ book is so important in our digital age.
