Today I went to...
By Leaves We Live 2009: A celebration of artists' books and small presses

There were some amazing artists books there but my favourite (which I could not resist) was by Leonard Mc Dermid called a pocket guide to the sea. Every book he makes is typeset and letterpress printed by hand, and he uses lino cuts to illustrate some of the text. I think they are beautiful.

You can see (and purchase) some of his work here.
