Libros de Artista Book Reading // SF

Book Reading By Author Simon Blattner

Author Simon Blattner will be reading excerpts from his newly released book: Libros de Artista, Artists’ Books from Mexico and the Mexican Diaspora.

In his new book, Blattner tells the story of how he came to love handmade paper, printing, and artists’ books.

He describes how he discovered the robust artists’ book scene of Mexico and his own life adventure. Included in the book are brilliant photographs of 15 unique contemporary artists’ books and a compelling forward by artist and Stanford University Professor, Enrique Chagoya. Libros de Artista is a bilingual book in English and Spanish and is a powerful look at the most exciting hand-made art books in the world today.

Simon will be bringing several artists’ books to the reading for an up close look at these incredible works.
