Editorial Reviews

"Although the idea may seem antiquated now, fifty years ago [Ed] Ruscha saw creating books as a cheap way to get his work in front of the public. Today there appears to be a kind of backlash against the digital universe, as artists are again embracing the notion of artist books despite the proliferation of electronic reading devices." —The New York Times
