500 handmade books : inspiring interpretations of a timeless form( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To qualify for inclusion, each piece had to function like a book, but a number of the works also curl, hang, or swirl. While there are rectangular volumes, you'll find others that are circular, shaped like a house, and in completely abstract forms that will delight the eyes and imagination.

The content varies as well. Some of the pages are blank, while others contain elaborate, content-driven narratives"--Cover flaps
