Artist Books by Vicki Milewski


I make artist books to move forward the way we read, process information and communicate.  The architecture of the book can lead to other ways of understanding text, language and our sense of self.


 I see making artist books as a path toward a new future of reading, just as the internet changed our way of reading so too can artist books.

Above is the cover of my Artist Book artwork, Flowers I Have Known and the Secrets They have Shared with Me. The three flowers are made from organic cotton, dyed with rose petals from three different roses that men I have loved gave to me.  Text is integrated into each flower that has been printed on handmade paper, dyed again with those 3 roses.  The different colors that occurred from each dying batch seemed to match those 3 different relationships.
