Artists Making Book

Artists Making Books from Portable Editions on Vimeo.

Under Portable Editions, Leila & Juana created Artist Making Books, a curated project that supports the production of a short run artists’ book for artists with ties to South Florida. Artists Making Books encourage artists to envision the book format as a public space and to explore aspects of their artistic practice in new ways.

The first cycle of AMB was produced with funds generously provided by Florida Gulf Coast University for the exhibition Self Published: Artists Making Books, Editions and Zines, that they curated in the Fall of 2014.

The first cycle of AMB are: Amalia Caputo and Marina Font, Gamaliel Herrera, Angelica Londoño and Toby Millman

The project aims to build a catalogue of artists’ book that specifically captures artistic output in South Florida and highlights independent and micro-publishing as an artistic practice.
