So inspiring I feel like running out to a craft supply store and taking up bookbinding again as a hobby. It’s great to read the stories behind each piece of work too – I especially love the concept behind the Mum’s Closet book.

Reply T IN LA says: May 16, 2008 at 11:44 am Can someone please tell me where to buy the bird light!!!? I am crazy for it and dream of the day it’s connected to my laptop. (It’s just a sample, isn’t it?) :( Reply Chris A. Wronski says: May 16, 2008 at 4:14 pm I’m going to have refined versions of the bird lights available for purchase later this year. Email me. ;-) Reply Kate Bingaman-Burt says: May 17, 2008 at 8:26 pm I had the pleasure of having a crit with talia while I was a visiting artist at the university of georgia this spring and her work is even more fabulous in real life! way to go! Reply Margot Ecke says: May 18, 2008 at 3:09 pm Artists’ books are always very difficult to showcase and pictures just don’t do Talia’s work justice. I am familiar with her work in person and the pieces are really fun, thoughtful, and truly engaging. Reply Nancy Kolquit says: May 21, 2008 at 9:41 pm I love Talia’s art. I found the books in particular to be extremely creative. Especially the one of her grandmother. She has even written and release a CD. She’s amazing! Reply Eric Lotzer says: May 22, 2008 at 12:57 pm As one of Talia’s peers, I am not surprised that she is one of the finalists. I have loved her work for awhile now. Everyone should take a look on her website to see more work. Reply jessica ann mills says: May 22, 2008 at 1:42 pm Talia’s work is truly charming! As is she and I wish her the best of luck.
