I'm an artist living in Chicago and am raising money to self publish and professionally bind my artist's book, "Scavenger Hunt."
My project for kickstarter.com consists of publishing five copies of my artist's book "Scavenger Hunt" for the "Hamburger Fotobuchtage Festival" that will be held in Germany this June. My books will be presented by "Kehrer Art Books of Heidelberg".
I've self published books in the past but never as one of a kind art objects. My goal is to create a full edition of 50 books and have found a great local bindery called "Love Leaf Press" who are going to help me out. Each book is going to cost me roughly $250 to make but they are going to look really really good!
Some of my previous books have been purchased by: Allen Library, University of Washington, Seattle, WA Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Munich, Germany Columbia College Chicago Special Collections, Chicago, IL George Eastman House, Rochester, NY Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection, Chicago, IL Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, IL Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Houston, TX Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Boston, MA Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario Rhode Island School of Design Library, Providence, RI UCLA Arts Library Special Collections, Los Angeles, CA University of Alberta Special Collections, Alberta, Canada Victoria & Albert Museum, London, England Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY Yale University Special Collections Library, New Haven, CT
