Big Books, Little Books


Kindle, iPhone, Stanza, “media pads,” whatever. Sick of news about things you can’t afford that do things you don’t need done? Head to the Donna Seager Gallery and put your little mits and screen-numbed eyes on the dope selection of treasures at the “Fourth Annual Exhibition of Handmade and Altered Artist Books,” The Art of the Book, which runs through May 31st. Seager is a gem in the art world, and this is why. Artists this year include William T. Wiley, Victoria Bean, Tor Archer, Erin Sweeney (dress book!), and Richard Lang of Electric Works, who has written some Museum Stories!
