So, you've all heard me gush about Sarah Bodman and her work at the University of the West of England Center for Fine Print Research before. Sarah puts out an amazing array of research, publications, books, journals and more, all focused on advancing our field of book arts. Her job as a research fellow at the university is unmatched here in the United States and I for one am grateful for her hard work.


This year's Artist Book Year Book looks fantastic. Another compendium of who's who and what's what in the book arts—around the world. 


You can pick up your copy here at 23 Sandy. I have only 10 copies on hand, so get here quick. Cost is $25.
