How to make your own cheap inexpensive artists' books
Goodman, Michael (Printer)
Michael Goodman, founder and former associate director and printer at Nexus Press, created a mini artist's book as a cliche or mock of other artist's books. "The number of people who would show up with A Great Idea that turned out to be just the Same Great Idea as everyone else's Great Idea was, well, not great at all..... So Michael took all of these all-too predictable project ideas and synthesized them into a single instruction manual. The fact that it is so tiny is part of its charm and effect."--From website (http://www.artistsbooksonline.org/works/howt.xml).
