We’re currently celebrating a re-design of LarkCrafts.com (looks pretty cool, right?), which happens to coincide with a spring season filled with incredible Lark books landing on shelves.
One of the gorgeous titles to be released this spring is Masters: Book Arts, a stunning collection of work by 43 master book artists. Curated by Eileen Wallace, Masters: Book Arts celebrates the design, craftsmanship, and innovation of contemporary book arts, and features a striking array of techniques from letterpress, collage, and printmaking to carving, photography, and stitching. A spectrum of book binding methods is explored, and artists’ messages touch on subjects of whimsy, reflection, performance, and mystery.
Each featured master artist takes center stage in an informative eight-page chapter that includes gorgeous photos, illuminating personal quotes, and a short essay by Eileen Wallace, providing a distinctive portrait of each artist and their impressive work. The book is truly a pleasure to behold.
In celebration of the release of Masters: Book Arts, we’re giving away six Lark titles that showcase the art of the book—books on Books, if you will—[Masters: Book Arts, 500 Handmade Books, Making Handmade Books, Eco Books, The Penland Book of Handmade Books, and Live & Learn: Real Life Journals].
