Susan Porteous is a book artist whose work explores both sculptural and traditionally bound books that investigate issues of form, content, word, and image, using both handmade and commercial production methods.
As always, you can find the work of other artists in the Books as Art page on the blog.
The work above is an alphabet book created by altering a standard dictionary. Each section is cut into a silhouette of an object that begins with its respective letter, for example, A is for apple, B is for bell, C is for cat, and so on.
The one below was designed to resemble a rope bridge with the exaggerated book block spanning the gap between two rocks. It was made from a book on how to play Bridge.
