Looking for Quilters who Make Artists' Books

Hello!  One of my new found loves is the area of Artists' Books - books that are the art. I've been collecting interesting examples of Pop-ups & Book Art on Pinterest for a few months.

I recall once seeing Faith Ringgold's 1995 Seven Passages to a Flight, limited edition art book, in person and being amazed. There were only 30 copies made, and they all sold out.

I recently started looking for Black artists who are making Artists' Books and came across Tracy Dietzel's 27-page African American Artists' Books: A Resource, published in 1992.

Now I'm curious - who are today's Black artists or quilters making artists books?

Hello Kyra,

I'm an artist who makes artist books. Glad to meet another book lover. Is the book featured in your post still in print?
