Crucial Perimeter is our stunning new book arts acquisition from Islam Aly, one of the first graduates from the University of Iowa Center for the Book’s MFA program. 

I am hoping more people will learn that these historical bindings still exist and are still used in book art, and that the kind of content I use in my books will foster cross-cultural learning by making viewers learn about Islamic art and culture. “

Quoted from:

Aly, Islam Mahmoud Mohamed. “Using Historical Bindings in Producing Contemporary Artists’ Books.” Master’s thesis, University of Iowa, 2013.
