\n

Jean Clad\, an award-winning Southern California curator and artist\, has chosen 21 artist s who have many different approaches to making books. They take chances and explore every kind of material and structure. They use familiar materials and methods while experimenting with size and usual juxtapositions of mater ials. Images and words (if any) reinforce the essence of the book\, especia lly when poetry is used. Each of these books has the sensual presence of th e artist’s hand and intense visual impact.
