The Spirit Books in Bound & Lettered

The new issue of Bound & Lettered contains an article I wrote about the Spirit Books. You can find information about purchasing individual issues or subscribing here.

Here's something from the article:

Making the Spirit Books has been in many ways about letting go—of words, of imagery, of control—and giving voice to the materials. There is not and will never be a preliminary sketch of a Spirit Book. I work intuitively with no starting plan. I view them as both books and sculptures. As books, I am concerned with the experience of turning the pages. As sculptures, I try to create objects where all the elements work together to create a harmonious whole. It’s not about how I want the Spirit Books to look but how they need to look.

Thank you John Neal!
