Book Objects / Book Constructions

The books and book-like things shown here are companions to the Altered Books, made during the same time period and with a similar outlook and sensibility. A few are made from found book-shaped objects, and others are made with bookbinding techniques, if not with traditional materials. They were made between 1989 and 2001.  Almost all of these books were featured in the installation LIBRARY at one time or another, except for the Pulp Fiction books, which were made for the installation Speaking Volumes. 

(This is not the entire body of work; more book objects and constructions may be added).
