Description

This accordion spine book unfolds in a surprising and compelling manner – the staggered signatures create a bold, continuous monotype once open. After the pages were sewn to the spine, the entire book block was run through the press – a brave, yet successful experiment.

Lisa Miles is an emerging book artist living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her work is bright with overarching spontaneity, but also moments of deep contemplation. Using her own visceral visual language, she tell stories through the relationships between abstract forms. By incorporating monotypes and printing/painting on book cloth, she is able to present a finished product that is completely designed and constructed with her own eye and hand.
