From the introduction: "The following pages feature work from artists who turn the book form on its head by using bookbinding, woodworking, paper crafting, origami, textile, and decorative techniques. They follow the process from pulp to paper to printing and binding and then beyond for an array of creative mutilations and dissections." Contains color photographs and an artist directory.
