Whether these contemporary book artists favored technique, material, sacred text and/or interpretation as their emphasis, each pursued in a deeply intimate form of engagement with Hebrew text and tradition, echoing its particular narrative convention by the very serial nature of book art. Book unbound or bound, scroll or fold-out, the dynamic of multiple images to narrate concretely or abstractly defines all these works as reflections of a Biblical narrative paradigm. Clearly that is why we are called the People of the Book.
