â€śHand Bookâ€ť is a book that is also an object. My desire was to make a sculptural form, suggesting â€śbook,â€ť that plays with both the idea of â€śhandâ€ť and â€śhand book,â€ť 2 different concepts. I set about contrasting and meshing the textures and colors of the components in order to create sizzling, overall pattern. I find in my artmaking that when I make books, I must play.
