Antoinette Moorby

After a career in design education I discovered book binding and from there to the world of artists books. My inspiration comes from many sources – literary, scientific, historic and the abstract. My work can sometimes be described as quirky and including a touch of whimsy. I enjoy creating works which include movement or an element of surprise and exploring different structures and book forms from the traditional to those which sometimes challenge the viewer’s perception of what a book is or should be. I am keen to match the subject or theme of a book to its form

Dia de los Muertos

The Day of the dead is seen very much as a celebration of the lives that have passed.
