functions while art and creativity are considered “right-brained” activity, some book artists are bridging
this hemispheric divide with artist’s books and book arts inspired by science texts. These artist’s books
reflect upon or interpret significant works and concepts of astronomy, medicine, geology, physics and

that creative artworks often have some scientific basis and/or inspiration.
