SCENES FROM THE LIFE...

DREAM AND VARIATIONS
Dream and Variations (1988) is another one-of-a-kind bookwork. It is
happily at home in the collection of Frances and Nicolas McDowall who
are, besides being their inimitable individual selves, also the
legendary Old Stile Press (that's 'stile' not 'styl...

PUBLIC COLLECTIONS
Not many people know this. But not many people know about artists' books
and even if they do, not so many people know that they can go to public
institutions, museums, university and other libraries who have such

I'D RATHER BE A MASOCHIST...
Still some air left in the trumpet so here's something more or less
completely different. I'd Rather Be a Masochist Than An Analyst. 1988.
One-of-a-kind bookwork. If you're a visual artist, what's your reply

QUANTUM LEAPING
You might not see my Quantum Leap as a book and I wouldn't blame you.
Art objects in the genre Artists’ Books can have all kinds of odd
characteristics which make them unsuitable for bookshelves. The
Bibliothèque Nationale de France has categories such a...

TO BLOW OR NOT TO BLOW?
When is the right time to blow one's own trumpet, loud enough to reach
the ears one would like to reach? You know what I mean. If, as a child
and later on as well, you often felt you weren't heard, a plaintive

CATEGORIES. NOT
Categories. I hate categories. But to function efficiently, successfully, our society demands that you define your category. Who goes there? Me. Moi. Io. Eu. Ya...... What category is that? I don't want to define it. Then you can't expect to be given the ki...
