Andrew Huot’s artist books deal with abstracting the events of our daily life into line and shape; looking at everyday situations and distilling them down to their essence then extending them outward to our collective experience. Andrew’s work is exhibited nationally and is found in the collections including The Free Library of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania. He is currently the Conservator for the Milner Library at Illinois State University. Additionally, he teaches bookbinding, book arts, and conservation workshops at a variety of venues, including universities, summer programs and community arts organizations.
