Friday Night Flicks: Artists’ Books at MIT

In tonight’s pair of very short flicks Anna Boutin-Cooper introduces two artists’ books: The City Within by Natalie Draz, and The Actual Accordion Book by Peter and Donna Thomas.

 

 

 

You might wish to spend a little time this weekend checking out Natalie Draz’s website here (pop-ups!) or looking at Instagram images from Peter and Donna Thomas here. (You can see their gypsy caravan and images from some of their workshops.) You can also read one of my posts from last year’s Advent calendar on Nested Accordions, a structure invented by Peter and Donna Thomas.

About Byopia Press

I have been working in the book arts field for more than thirty years, and operating Byopia Press with my husband David since the late 1990s. I began producing artist's books and altered books in 2004. I also create prints and drawings that are frequently text-inspired or text-based.

    I loved both books! Thank you. The presenter, Anna, described the Natalie Draz book as kinetic and interactive (which I might suppose are terms suitable to MIT) but to me The City Within was significantly poetic.
