Breaking the Codex
12 x 24 x 1/2 in
220-page hardcover monograph of Doug Beube’s works over 30 years. 275 color illustrations and essays illuminate the artist’s processes, materials and methods.
Further illumination is provided in essays by a series of writers, scholars, critics, curators, collectors, and fellow artists who are working in, or investigating, the book as art medium, discussing Beube’s poignant and varied creations from a historical, cinematic, or aesthetic perspective, or about idiosyncratic aspects that have captured their attention—the organic books, the carved books, the map pieces, and so forth.
