Westward Bound showcases a collection of handmade artist books created by young and emerging female artists. Each book, unique or part of a small edition, explores different topics ranging from the formation of community to that experience of landscape. The artists are not only skilled bookbinders, creating carefully and precisely crafted works, but also excellent visual artist’s, communicating their ideas in
novel and compelling ways. Visitors are invited to explore the intimate nature of the books, observing them page by page, experiencing each image and the narrative sequence with both sight and touch. Collectively, these pieces represent a cross-section of the artist book in contemporary
culture and showcase many iterations of the book as art.
