Book Bombs, organics, handmade books

I've been reading about artists who establish their own presses and who make artists books, some fold out 3-d, altered, sculptural, etc. They use seeds, grasses, organic materials, and rags to create their own paper. They make historical, social, and aristic statements with their books, and many are involved in a collaborative project called Book Bombs that crosses the country and back. People create art books and leave them in public spaces, in a tree, on a telephone pole, and some are for people to add to as they pass by. This is sort of a visual literacy projet. The goal of many of these artists is to race the book to a fine art object, which is how it began, after is has been a massproduced consumable that conveys information and data. The sites for these people is great, and many are also teachers and lecturers as well as printers with their own presses. Just google book bombs.
