(Artist’s biography, below)
  • Russell Maret is a book artist, author, and alphabet designer working in New York City. He has produced over fifty books and manuscripts, most of which deal with alphabetical form, geometry, and color theory. His alphabetical works play with the gray area between legibility and abstraction, exploring the relationship between alphabetical form and textual content. His books are represented in public and private collections throughout the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Bodleian Library, the Meermanno Museum, and the Herzog August Bibliothek.
