Scott Rothstein, who profiled my work last year on his excellent blog Art Found Out, has just published a short piece about my silhouette imagery for the online arts journal Hand/Eye. His article focuses particularly on the one-of-a-kind artist books, including the series Tall Tales. Scott's article, In Silhouette - Deborah Klein's diverse and eclectic paper art, can be read HERE.

The publication of the article is timely, as I have been invited to exhibit a selection of these and other book art in Biblio, the artist book section of this year's Clunes Booktown on the weekend of 3-4 May.

Over the past few weeks I've been doing a great deal of advance preparation, because on Friday my partner Shane Jones and I will be winging our way to London for a month. We are scheduled to return just three days before Booktown begins.

I've made four new zines for Booktown, using iPad apps as a basis for the layout and design. These are three of the four:
