"Barry Moser, despite his tendency to sound like a Baptist preacher and his abysmal table manners, is a virtuoso close to our hearts. He is best known as an artist who works with books, and more specifically with the texts he loves." "Here is a selection of his prose, his essays, his speeches, and even his letters and journal entries, all concerning his work as a working artist. If you want to know how an artist thinks, how someone who has not only read books but thought deeply about their texts operates, how someone who is as committed to the book as object as anyone working in the field goes about integrating text and image, then this book is a book you should read and reread."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
