I started to make artist books in 1998. They are all handmade using various printing and cutting techniques. The editions vary from 4 to 150 books and are moderately priced. Original music and sound (which I composed, performed, and recorded) are integral parts of many of my artist book editions. A music CD fits into a holder that is part of the book's design or accompanies the book in its own case.
