artist books

Clancy’s published artist books and fine art prints and downloadable eBooks are available on a “shop” page here: https://sueclancy.com/shop/

This page tells you more about the artist books themselves. An “artist book” is a book conceived as an art object. It reveals a story over time and space using a combination of content and art technique in a way that directly involves the viewers participation.  Artist books are the ultimate mixed media: combining various artistic methods such as drawing, painting, creative writing, collage, digital media, layout, design, gluing, binding and of course storytelling.

Most of Sue’s artist books are themselves unique works of art – as you’ll see on this page – occasionally she uses other book formats such as the ebook still using an ‘artist book’ concept but experimentally using a ebook publishing format. – for example the graphic novel/chapbook “Dr. Bob’s Emotional Repair Program First Aid Kit” or artist monographs such as the eBook “Coffee, Table, Book“.

Btw: The “Dr. Bob’s Emotional Repair Program First Aid Kit” (links below) is the meta-data behind all of Sue’s artwork. It explains in a round-about way why she does the kind of art she does.

A new paperback print version of “Dr. Bob’s Emotional Repair Program First Aid Kit” is now available worldwide. Direct link for the printed book here.  Here is the eBook link –  and some sample pages from this book below:
