"Always a space for experimentation, the book has been a platform for innovative collaboration since its invention, and never more than in the modern era when painters, poets, editors, typographers, and binders have each contributed to the production of works whose whole becomes something far more than its parts. The essays in this volume address some of the main threads of collaboration in American and French poetry and printing, where the livre d'artiste flirts with the artist's book in imagining the page, the text, the codex as a vital scene of exchange. Each of these authors has been involved in this field in a professional and/or creative manner, and each speaks from experience with substantive authority." Johanna Drucker"
