- The 27 visual artists whose portfolios comprise this exciting collection each work with printed books as their medium. They carve, paint, and repurpose pulp to striking effect, building startling secondary evocations from their material's primary narratives. Amid the rush toward e-books, this volume amounts to a wild celebration of the printed, illustrated, and bound form.
