The prints I make usually find their way into Artist books. The cover, half title page, folios, and colophons allow my fascination with sculpture to take its cue in the dimensional presence of the book. Artist books that I’ve created satisfy the questions I have about the possible physicality of the print. Can prints be objects? Can objects be prints? Making books has helped me expand answers to those questions by transposing the privacy of the printed page to the public presence of an object.
