1000 Artists' Books is divided into four chapters: 1. Codex books, (books with pages joined to make a spine); 2. Accordion and fold-able books (books with multiple-fold pages); 3. Single sheet books (stacks of pages, scrolls); 4. Sculptural books (books made from objects and objects made into books). Chapters 1, 2 and 4 are each roughly 30% of the book. Chapter 3 is about 60 photos. In the back is an image directory that lists the title, materials, etc. for each book. There is also an artist directory, listing urls and email addresses. Some people have said it is a little awkward to flip between the photos and the image directory. I put a book mark in the image directory to make this easier.
Still, don't let it stop you from buying this book. You can always look the artists up online to see how they create their books.
I met two more of the artists in the book at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts last week, and was amazed and delighted by their work as well. It great to be in the company of heroes.
