  • "The Artist's Book Ideation Cards deck was designed as an aid to the book artist, to jump start a new project or inform one in progress. There are two decks in the set: Category Cards containing approximately eight cards in each of the seven categories (text, image, structure, paper, layout, technique and color) and 54 Adjective Cards of which three are 'wild cards.' Choosing a card randomly from each of the seven categories and five cards from the adjectives offers an unexpected recipe for a project"--23 Sandy Gallery website.


  • "Barb Tetenbaum developed the original set of artist's book ideation cards for use in her teaching practice. This version was further developed and designed in collaboration with Julie Chen"--Colophon card.
  • Two decks of offset printed playing cards enclosed in an acrylic box.
