Thought you might be interested to see the process Dave uses to create his artist's books.
Artists, Fine Arts
This is a book of Walt Witman's poems, a Trilogy, which will be sent to the USA for sale into one of the Institutions over there. Dave firstly penciled lots of design ideas, resonating with the written word, in this case the three chosen poems for this project. He then selects the ideas he wants to work with and in this instance has created small mock-ups of the various pages and design components, working with the unusual folds and shapes of each page to create an interesting finished texture for this particular poem.
More on this poem when the book is completed - but it's sure to be an amazing artist's book, only the original will be available as it would be too difficult to create copies of this complex layout.
