Room Full of Ideas

Brian Taylor creates photographically illustrated books springing from his fascination with the book format and a love of texture in art. His imagery is inspired by the surreal and poetic moments of living in our fast-paced, modern world. Brian is fascinated by how daily life in the 21st Century presents us with incredible experiences in such regularity that we no longer differentiate between what is natural and what is colored with implausibility, humor, and irony.


Support for Center for Book Arts’ visual arts programming is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
