By Joseph J. D’Ambrosio, 2003.

A pre-eminent “artist working in the book medium,” Joseph J. D’Ambrosio has painstakingly recorded the processes by which he has created his groundbreaking works–noting his false starts and failures as well as his successes. He analyzes his motives behind the inventive structures and designs so highly prized by collectors, museums, and libraries. D’Ambrosio delves honestly and wittily into his own creativity, and the book is a gem, with copious illustrations of his oeuvre.
