#var:page_name# cover

Nationally known book artist Chris Perry uses handmade books to without the use of words or images. Perry himself states that “the book artist is a label that has a pretty broad definition, like sculpture. Book art tends to be things that are made of books or are about books or incorporate books in some way.” While books have always been known to contain art, they are hardly thought of as being works of art as themselves. Perry pushes the limits of the book arts genre by creating contemporary interpretations of the book as an art object. Please register at ridgefieldlibrary.org.
