Anyone that knows the work that I did w/ the sculptural books will know why, when I see the work of Nicholas Jones I just want to weep. It's gorgeous, true, but that is not the real reason I want to weep.........I just didn't even dream of having such amazing craftmanship as this.....he has raised the bar of what I thought was achievable w/ an exacto. Here's a great interview at the Design Files. Lots of great pictures of his studio and works in progress.
