Painter, poet, broadcaster, and human rights activist Austin Straus has been producing unique handmade artist's books for several years. His book artwork is represented in numerous libraries and museums. In this playful book, he employs a lively range of collage techniques inlcuding classic torn paper, burned papers, text fragments, bright plastic and glittering synthetic materials, all mounted on a series of brightly colored papers and resulting in an hyper-energetic and optimistic sequence.
