"In the digital era the future of the printed book seems uncertain,
yet the handmade artist's book is a flourishing artform.
Each of these works is unique in its use of design, typography, paper and binding,
both drawing upon and extending the history and tradition of the book.
The artists featured include Angela Cavalieri, Daniel Moynihan,
Bruno Leti, Inge King, Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison."
