CHARUKA, PETER E No diving
  • Digital prints, re-processed with Photoshop a
    variation of the concertina format.
  • The intention of the book was to reflect on my
    relationship to the landscape, in particular, the
    ocean and waterI am a keen surfer and skin
    diver.

8
CHARUKA, PETER E No diving
  • I have an interest in childrens books,
    both historically and contemporary, and the
    way that they are engineered such as pop-up
    books. This was a motivation for how the book
    was made so that it could be presented in a
    number of scenarios you could turn the pages
    like a conventional book or you could
    display it like a sculpture.
  • How might this book comment on the
    artists interests as identity?
  • Note the pop-up, out feature!

TSE, JONATHAN Portrait of an Australian
  • This artist's book contains original images
    and is a limited edition of ten plus two
    a.p.s, hand screenprinted and signed by
    the artist'
  • What document is this artist
    appropriating? What might he be suggesting by
    his choice of images and information used?
  • What other documents can make up your
    identity?
  • Research altered books
  • Note the use of text Image integrated.

10
TSE, JONATHAN Portrait of an Australian
The artists family migrated to Australia from
Hong Kong in 1975. For the child migrant the
process of settling into a new country is
sometimes more demanding than it is for an adult.
The decision to migrate is usually one in which
the child has little to say, even though the
parents may see their children as the main
beneficiaries of migration. In the form of an
Australian passport Portrait of an Australian
presents the migrant experience mainly through
words and pictures, and challenges the notion of
what it is to be Australian.
11
TSE, JONATHAN Portrait of an Australian
The images, text and other resources were
compiled over a period of 12 months. All images
used in the book were from the artists family
album. The paper is Edward Dunlop paper. The
Australian Coat of Arms was redesigned and
fabricated for the cover and block foiled in
gold.
12
OUDYN, JACK The very first book of fish
  • Mock-up for book published by Micro Press in
    edition of 50 copies. Ink, paint, collage on
    pages from telephone directory.
  • Note this could be folded up or cut to make a
    flutter book.
  • What ideas could you substitute to make a
    panelled look at your self?...
  • Or rework which typical image in a number of
    different ways?

13
HOGAN, JAN Little Red Riding Hood (art
original)
  • Lithographs on paper mounted on sixteen wooden
    blocks, held in wooden box with two-part hinged
    lid each block has one letter and three printed
    illustrations.
  • Could Identity be a story set out on blocks
    instead of pages?
  • What words, letters could tie into the tale of
    self?

14
McBURNIE, RON Little hole
The five etchings for this book were made by Ron
McBurnie and printed by Rochelle Knarston on
Arches paper. The book was designed and bound in
full ltemugt leather by Friedhelm Pohlmann in 1996
in an edition of 20. The idea for the book
relates to its structure. Fred Pohlmann gave me a
mock up first. I thought that I should design the
etchings around the little hole in its centre.
The environmental theme just evolved from at
first observing the hole, to touching it, and
then to getting very serious and blasting the
hell out of it. Its also a book about
observation. I have noticed that many people who
look through the book fail to notice the tiny
piece of gold leaf hidden in the hole of the last
page. When we go somewhere we often miss seeing
whats really in front of us staring us in the
face Ron McBurnie
15
McBURNIE, RON Little hole
  • There are a number of pages folded up to ¼
    size.
  • What might you feel as you unfolded each?
  • Note the folds and layout of the images to
    a centre point. What ideas of yours might
    unfold and reveal around a central focus?

16
KINGSTON, PETER A - Z
  • Alternative title (not on item) Alphabet book
    of phobias. Illustrations are original etchings,
    hand-coloured This is an ABCedary of phobias,
    irreverent, funny and beautifully executed.
  • The artist suffered from agoraphobia for a time
    which formed the inspiration for this book.
  • What zany ideas might you use to create
    an ABCedary of Identity or Self?
  • Note the idea of handcolouring you might
    photocopy or print multiple copies and make
    each distinct.

17
MALONE, HELEN Roman alphabet
  • Handmade book designed, written and embossed by
    Helen Malone. This book arose from an interest in
    the history and roots of our letters, language
    and culture in Ancient Rome.
  • The familiar monumental classical letters of the
    Roman alphabet were often carved into stone.
    Stone carvers strive to give the illusion that
    the letters are raised above the surface rather
    than lying below it. This inspired the idea of
    using the letters in combination of cutting and
    hand embossing to create visual interest, a play
    of light and shadow, to accentuate the form.
    Watercolour paper was painted with diluted Sumi
    ink to suggest a subtle marble effect. Each
    letter of the alphabet was linked to a Latin word
    which as a derivative to current English.

18
MALONE, HELEN Roman alphabet
  • The concertina book format was chosen to
    allow display of the whole work at the one
    time (like stone carvings).
  • Consider the cutout quality here in the
    concertina folded book. What could you
    emphasize using this idea?
  • Note the container for this book in the
    background.

19
WOOD, BERYL Art class
  • Calico stretched over board alternate pieces
    have printed narrative in verse, others are laser
    printed to illustrate the story in wooden box
    which has painting in acrylic on top .
  • The book was made after I painted a scene
    representing an art class showing how different
    people see objects and situations from different
    perspectives. As the last line of the script says
    Viva la difference.

20
WOOD, BERYL Art class
  • Note your book doesnt have to made of paper!
    Or pages joined!
  • Would you then necessarily start at one end or
    choose to view the work from any point? So
    would you consider this when organizing your
    focus for this approach? All separate
    individual insights, viewpoints? Or a
    continuous tale if in the right order?

21
MONEY, CATHERINE MehndiNature
  •   My hands are very old they hold a story.
    It is a story of nature and struggle. Like an
    ancient relic, they are stored in a box.
  • MehndiNature
  • Delicate Intricate Precious Vulnerable.
  • Fading from existence. Lost Forever.
  • It is in our hands.
  • The inscription on my book reads My name
    is Catharine Money and theseare my hands. Nature
    is in everyones hands. We are the caretakers.
    Like the ancient art of mehndi henna on the hands
    of the bride, toil will replace the fading
    beauty. Nature is in our hands. Give nature a
    hand

22
MONEY, CATHERINE MehndiNature
Mehndi. The starting point for my book was a
newspaper photograph of a womans hands that had
been henna tattooed. She was to be married. It
was here that I learnt that her culture forbade
her from any form of manual labour while she
still had the henna tattoos on the palms of her
hands. Henna tattoos are a temporary work of
art. I loved this concept of no housework and
dreamt of having the palms of my hands
permanently tattooedMy book, when opened fully,
is like the hands of the bride, on show. They
also represent how one holds ones hands when
something fragile is placed in them. This is
also the gesture for sharing something.
23
MONEY, CATHERINE MehndiNature
  • I traced my hands to make this book
  • I placed my book in an outer case of
    distressed, embossed aluminium to give it the
    feel of something ancient. Placing it in a
    clear Perspex box, that resembles glass, and
    by elevating it up off the base, gave
    MehndiNature a relic like and precious
    feel.
  • Note your book doesnt have to be a
    geometric shape. (What about a paper doll cut
    out concertina?)
  • The artist has used her own hand tracecould
    you incorporate yourself some how as a
    template ..a shoe, foot ,/ an ear print?
  • How will you present your work cover,
    container?

24
NOTE THE CONTAINER IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF
THESE ARTISTS BOOKS PRESENTATION BY JUDY

25
THE ARTIST STATEMENT
  • The quotes beside the illustrations of the
    Artists Books are from The Artists Statement.
    This information is supplied by the person
    creating the work often giving details of
    production, process materials but predominately
    giving the reader the leading direction, source
    of their ideas or motivation. It often includes
    insight into a personal interest of their own
    developed here.
  • Create your own artist statement to accompany
    your work to explain what ideas you focused on ,
    why, and where your sources came from as well as
    what you trialled played around with a
    critique in conclusion.

26
TO CONCLUDE QUESTIONS TO PONDER
  • Where do these artists get their ideas from? Is
    it a response, an interpretation of theme/event?
    Is it always personal?
  • Would you agree they generally focus in on a
    specific idea/issue?
  • Do they use many different techniques to create
    their images and then gather them together, or
    do they refine their choices? What determines
    their selection?
  • Which works had the most visual impact? Was this
    because they used the art design elements and
    principles - line, colour, shape, tone, texture,
    rhythm, repetition, balance, contrast, variety,
    harmony etc. - in specific ways?

27
TO CONCLUDE QUESTIONS TO PONDER
  • Did they all have a sculptural quality? How many
    do you need/want to turn the page to read?
  • These works are Australian. Would there be much
    difference in artists books from overseas
    artists? Check the websites.
  • University of Delaware Library
    www.lib.udel.edu/ud/spec/exhibits/artistsbook Revi
    ew this site to see a collection of artist books
    exhibitions across many years titled Personal
    visions.
  • The Smithsonian Institution Libraries site
    also has online exhibitions to search
    www.sil.si.edu/SILPublications/online_Exhibitions
    Type in simple query artists books and
    worldwide links will appear.
  • Which art works did you admire? Will they inspire
    you to develop your own artists book or will you
    find your own source of inspiration?
