Statement: " I first learned bookmaking while studying abroad. I learned about the structure and history of the book and how important it was and still is in shaping our world. A book is a familiar object that everyone has encountered, and for that reason people easily make connections with books. I quickly learned books can not only contain pictures and words, but can also become sculptural beings to hold physical objects and memories.".

Kim McCarthy: "The seemingly insignificant details I find in nature are what I believe to be the most inspiring and beautiful because they are untouched by human hands. It is with my own hands that I attempt to show others the beauty I see and share these wonders of nature with others.

"Combining my love for both printmaking and bookmaking, this edition of handbound books explores a collection of images and thoughts taken from my experiences in nature and relating them to relationships from my own life."
