Peter and Donna Thomas are book artists who work both collaboratively and individually. When they began in 1977, their aim was to create limited edition fine-press books made of the finest materials and produced to the highest standards of quality. They made their own paper, did the type-setting, printing and illustration, and also bound their books in full size and miniature format. This aesthetic guided their work as they began exploring non-traditional book structures and shaped book objects. In 2002, they wrote More Making Books by Hand: Exploring Miniature Books, Alternative Structures and Found Objects, a manual for making the structures they had developed. Since 2010, they have intermittently traveled the United States as the "Wandering Book Artists" giving talks, workshops and demonstrations to both academic and community-based audiences. Their 2017-18 trip will mark 40 years of making books by hand.
