"Artist books give me the opportunity to combine Medieval and contemporary aesthetics. Making books also expands my interest in building technical vocabulary. My involvement with the Medieval time period has shown me that when I do the work well my audience is drawn in and becomes intimately engaged with my work. Once people are engaged witht eh Medieval binding techniques, it gives me a strong platform for my broader narative." ~Nancy Hoogerwerf
