What I like about book arts: paper, color in any medium, the smell of ink, the shape of letters, gloss medium, amber varnish, wax . . .
A reason to collect bones, bits of hardware, tiny boxes, broken watches, doll parts, dead insects, postcards, flags, junk mail . . .
To work within the culture of books with the freedom to create new forms, and to say what I think using multiple voices.
