Evelyn Eller: "Experimenting with the book format was a natural outcome of my work in paper collage. In my books I use traditional structures as well as sculptural and innovative forms. Handmade, oriental, and painted papers, book cloth, string, boards and glue are my materials. these materials are fragile yet durable."

Evelyn Eller: "Much of our experience with art is now digital. In this book, I tried to give the viewer an experience of seeing and holding a book that had a tactile feel.

Evelyn Eller: "A few years ago, I acquired a large amount of postage stamps from the daughter of a stamp collector. I didn't know if they had any monetary value, but I wanted to use them in my art work. I created a mixed media collaged artist book, using photocopies of maps and original stamps from the United States, Italy, France, Poland, Canada and Great Britain. Stamp collecting is a vanishing pastime. This book is my way of commemorating the Stamp Album. "

Glorious Sounds

13 x 13"; 12 leaves. Laid in cloth covered four flap portfolio with bone and ribbon loop closure. Each collage signed and dated by the artist.

Evelyn Eller: "In this book, I used 12 of my original collages, which I created on handmade papers in 2002. The pages contain fragments of written text, musical scores, and photocopies of images of conductors, other musicians, and of my husband who was an avid fan of classical music. I always listen to WQXR, which is a radio station that plays classical music, while I am working in the studio. The folio is a homage to the glorious sounds that we hear when we listen to music."
