Chapter 1. Artists' Books as Intersection of Literature and Fine Art

These works explore the book as a dynamic meeting place for and dialogue between images and texts, images as texts and texts as images.

They move beyond the stasis of illustration as the two signifiers often interact, impinge on each other's space and, indeed, take on each other's characteristics. They however contrive to make the book-carrier a dynamic and rich conceptual space.
