Emily Marks - Thread Loves Paper

Saturday, September 7, 2013 - 1:00pm

How do artists think of the ideas and techniques that go into a work of art? What do their pasts have to do with the subject matter and materials they choose? Artist books are a field rife with new and unusual treatments.

Combining her love of books and fiber art, Emily Marks shows how 25 artists develop their ideas using thread as a medium for their work. Each section in Thread Loves Paper ($20.00) depicts the history of covers, bindings, hand embroidery, machine stitching and altered books and then shows how contemporary book artists build on this past to make new works of art.
