Example text

OLIVE ART MILLIS, MASSACHUSETTS, USA Kristi Oliver of Olive Art is both a book artist and teacher of creative arts. She started bookbinding using the Coptic method early in her teaching career and has since made hundreds of books. “I love the finished books I create. They are like little (or sometimes big) treasures. I love seeing what people use them for and what they might include inside. ” Shown here are two of Oliver’s Coptic-sewn books, made using a variety of different materials including security patterns from used envelopes and nautical charts.

Shown here is her book Cat’s Cradle. The intention behind its design was to translate thoughts about the nature of existence from idea to form by employing the book structure itself as a visual and physical model of concepts portrayed in the text. To this end it has been created using the carousel binding technique, which allows for the book to be viewed in two very distinct ways: circularly, with the cover boards drawn open 360 degrees so that they are touching, or linearly, when they are stretched apart like an accordian.

Shown here is a selection of her Coptic bindings, including a Coptic cross-stitch. “I chose to combine Coptic and French stitch because Coptic has a more resistant and smooth finish, but I wanted to use French stitch for detail and as a way of enhancing the spine of the book,” she explains. ” Working with different patterned book cloths and brightly colored threads, Ribero’s work is beautifully bold and graphic.
