Bookmarked Thoughts

Bookmarked Thoughts: Even More Book Art!

This is the fourth blog post I’ve done about book art, and I’ve got two more awesome book artists to share. I always love seeing how books can be transformed and looked at in new ways.

So far I’ve shared: Sue Blackwell, Yusuke Oono, Jody Harvey-Brown, Jeremy May, Jennifer Collier and Guy Laramee.

I found these two artists by reading Art Made from Books compiled by Laura Heyenga.
