You will gain an intimate look into their vibrant community as the artists share personal stories behind their creations. Each one celebrating the significance of what brought them together—one by one by one …
The overall design objective was to create as small a book as possible while still containing the necessary contents. Showcasing the artworks at actual size was important.
The book is 6.25 x 6.25 inches—maintaining the square dimension of the 1 x 1 x 1 inch limitation posed to the artists. A simple paper wrapper houses the book along with a stack of signature cards. This is the very first limited edition art book with 53 original signatures from wood artists all over the world.
The book was successfully funded through a Kickstarter-like campaign. Those who purchased the book and all of the artists where overwhelmed by the quality of the book. Everyone loved it and the artists were proud to be included in the publication.
