|Sequence I, James Siena|
Anyways, this post is a shout out to my alma mater, which started Flying Horse Editions, a fine art research facility and non-profit publisher of (among other things) artist books. Maybe they want to employ a law grad who doesn’t really know anything about art law? I’m sure I could learn!
I was on the UCF website when I saw this beautiful art book, Sequence I, by James Siena. If you go to the website, you can watch a short video of the whole book laid out. It won’t let me embed it here – boo. Apparently I’m not the only one taken with Siena’s book – the Museum of Modern Art just bought a hand painted copy.

So, do art books count as “books,” or are they just art? In this case, the medium seems inextricably linked to the project, so much that they are inseparable. Thoughts?
