Artist's Book Cape Town

Basic covers with an expendable spine.

When you commission an artist book from the Bookman, each work is personalized with the artist in mind, and nothing brings more satisfaction to see it filled with his or her art.

A Collage from 2005/6

Here is a spread from
Dean Arlen, and it is a series of drawings and collages he produced during his six month stay in Cape Town, South Africa. He wanted a book which could expand as that he carry things he found in it. The piece looks like an work of Art. See his exhibition of posters at the Museum of Port of Spain, 2005

The working stages of the folds at the back of the spine

This book was the second prototype incorporating an expandable back to accommodate loose documents without the back being broken or covers being bent when closing it.
