Here are our two pages from Hey 4-Eyes #2:
By Hand, The Use of Craft in Contemporary Art
We are honored to be a part of this book. There are a few pages featuring us with a short interview type of thing and then some images of our books. Here is a discription of the book:
In a response to the sleek forms and perfect angles of most late twentieth century design objects, many of today’s artists and designers are returning to handmade work such as hand lettering, hand drawing, and hand sewing. By Hand features an international collection of the most noteworthy artists and shows their work in detailed photography and insightful texts.
From books to pillows to T-shirts to toys, the pieces in this volume define an alternative view of contemporary design. Personal craft is emphasized over perfection and the personality of the artist is put forth as a key element of the finished product. From Kiki Smith’s lovingly etched birds to Barb Hunt’s knitted land mines to dynamo-ville’s one-of-a-kind puppets to Evil Twin’s hand-stitched publications, today’s art revels in the care and consideration of craft.
Buy it online at amazon.com or ask for it at your local bookstore.
that’s all for now
Happy Holidays Everyone!
