Maddy Rosenberg Artist's Book Collection

"When I look at art, I like to think that I have discovered a hidden corner of the world. When I read a book, I may feel that I have entered entire cities. With Maddy Rosenberg, an artist's book offers something of each."

- John Haber, Artists' BooksReviews (2/23 Spr 2006)
