Caren Florance (aka Ampersand Duck) has been making a wide variety of artists books for about 25 years. She is also a commercial designer and a writer of many things. She encourages her students to be playful, curious and to follow their own interests. Many of Caren's artist's books and zines are in the Library's collection and were on display at the recent Friends White Gloves event.
