Painted Bunting Books by Amy C. LeePard

Amy C. LeePard creates intricate handmade books in small editions under the imprint Painted Bunting Books. Each work is handcrafted from start to finish, each project a year in the making.

LeePard makes paper from pulp, letter presses the contents and intricately binds and boxes each volume. It is hard to describe the preciousness of each book. Her works are based on personal narrative and collective experience. My personal favorite is Common Box, an unusual book in which pieces slide in various configurations into an illuminated box. The overlays show the connections between the viewer and the maker. Beautiful and perfect work.
