"Book It: The Nontraditional World of Artists Books" by, Elinor Stecker-Orel
We think of a book as being a group of pages bound together between two covers. But what if you took something as unusual as a triangular shaped cigar box filled it with triangles of paper and photographs of three-sided objects? Artist, Elinor Stecker-Orel creates a variety of unique and genuinely different art books from such unusual objects. “Book It: The Nontraditional World of Artists Books,” on display feature a collection of artist's books as well as “altered books,” a book where pages have been transformed by a myriad of mixed-media techniques. Ms. Stecker-Orel is a fine art photographer, digital artist, an arts-and-crafts enthusiast, and author of eight books on photography. She was senior editor of Popular Photography magazine for many years.
