    I studied book arts briefly years ago so had to take a look at Talia’s site – truly wonderful stuff! 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.

  2. Kelly says:

    Oh, I love Chris’s clocks and the Nimrod’s Guide. Light, fun design.

  3. T IN LA says:

    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?) :(

  4. I’m going to have refined versions of the bird lights available for purchase later this year. Email me. ;-)

  5. 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!

  6. Margot Ecke says:

    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.

  7. Nancy Kolquit says:

    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!

  8. Eric Lotzer says:

    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.

  9. Talia’s work is truly charming! As is she and I wish her the best of luck.
