Book Art

Simon Goode


An artist working predominantly in the book form. With a keen interest in letterpress and traditional printmaking techniques, he explores in his work the crossover between modern digital technologies and traditional methods and processes. As a bookbinder, book artist and printmaker, he is interested in the preservation and renewal of classical book production in today's high-tech world. His practice centres on an intersection of craft, design and art, and this is achieved through a marriage of old and new technologies.
