"From Kumi Korf's exotic domed sculpture, 'Thousands' to Scott McCarney's wonderful trompe 'oeil alphabet book, these 18 books reflect visions not observed through a lens of a camera, but rather through the eye of the artist. Like the artists, the books are funny, bizarre, beautiful, sad, funky, happy and provocative." - Introduction
