Appropriation, cut and paste, juxtaposition, free association and the application of somewhat idiosyncratic aesthetics. These are the ingredients of my artist books. It is my hope that they facilitate imaginative leaps.
5 of my artist books are available here as free downloads. They are from a series of 20 volumes called “Brief History of the World.” The books were created over a 20 year period and this is an ongoing project.
The eBooks are designed to be viewed in the horizontal, two-page view. The book is arranged as spreads. There is a dialog between the facing pages. The download links below should open in whatever reader software you use.
