Master bookbinder Tim Ely’s elaborate
art books are a sophisticated otherworldly mash-up of landscapes,
diagrams, and architecture meant to inspire and provoke. The Snohomish,
Washington, native has been making books for almost his entire life,
finding inspiration on heaven and in earth, fusing science and art with
paper and ink. Now, contemporary art bookbinding specialist Abby Schoolman Books is presenting eight of his recently completed art books for sale in a catalog entitled Timothy C. Ely 8 Books.
