Andrew Huot is a book artist and bookbinder in Atlanta, where he operates Big River Bindery, a shop for bookmaking and letterpress printing, book repair, and design. His artwork uses the book form to express his observations about world around him. He uses marks, maps, photographs, and patterns to take his surroundings and abstract them, making them public rather than personal.
Andrew has a Master of Fine Arts in Book Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and teaches bookbinding and preservation for the University of Illinois, and conservation, bookbinding, and boxmaking for the International Preservation Studies Center. He has worked in conservation at libraries across the country. Andrew exhibits his work widely and has pieces in over 50 university library collections.
