Artists' Books from Women's Studio Workshop

A book of drawings depicting the pleasures of eating breakfast out with friends. Based on the artist's practice of drawing at least 2 hours a day in a public place, which she likens to a religious discipline, the book depicts favorite breakfast eateries.

Artists’ books are their own media.They can have a traditional book structure with a cover and sequential pages, or they can be sculptural objects, or elaborately folded constructions. Whatever their form, the books published by WSW are created by artists, hand printed in limited edition, and are thoroughly engaging. Artists’ books present artists with a new way of developing aesthetic ideas, telling personal stories or making political or social commentary. An early proponent of the media, WSW has produced over 200 limited edition artists’ books, and is the largest publisher in North America.
