Artist Books are a wonderfully diverse genre and my work is much the same. I'm fascinated by structures and boxes, both traditional and invented. Most of the books included here have some unique sculptural or spacial element to them.

Picture This: Six San Francisco Illustrators

Rhiannon Alpers

anuary 30th 2014 - April 11th 2014
Curated By: Rhiannon Alpers and Peter Linenthal
FeaturedArtists: Rhiannon Alpers, John Hersey, Peter Linenthal, Wendy MacNaughton, Shannon May, Jane Wattenberg

Illustrators continue one of the oldest human traditions: making
story-telling pictures. Both prehistoric images painted on cave walls and medieval illuminated manuscripts show the work of the human hand, but we live in a different world. The invention of printing and advances in
reproduction techniques bring us images that are less handmade, and computer programs can generate images on their own. The fact that a person actually made the pictures we see is less and less obvious.

Paradoxically, pictures have become increasingly powerful and pervasive in our interconnected world. Books, offering a sustained engagement and physical experience electronic media can’t give, are printed more than ever before. In graphic novels and manga, illustration becomes more important than text. We live in a visual age where pictures constantly bridge cultural borders.
