artist books

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.
