Further information:
"When I first saw artists' books in museum exhibits many years ago, I was puzzled that they were limited to virtuoso performances of beautiful printing & images whose subjects were often brief excerpts from classic literature. I wondered why no one made brief, beautiful books that were entire stories--worlds unto themselves. So I started to make linocut visual narratives. (I later discovered the work of Franz Masereel, a pioneer of the wordless black and white narrative.)" Babette Katz
