For CHART Book Fair 2022, Radha Pandey will be presenting some of her limited edition handmade artist books. Radha Pandey earned her MFA in Book Arts from the University of Iowa Center for the Book, where she studied Letterpress printing, Bookbinding, and Papermaking with a focus on European, Eastern and Indo-Islamic Papermaking techniques. Her artist’s books are held in numerous public collections internationally.

"The work I create focuses on my perception of the natural world and its fragility in relation to human existence. Much of what I make––one-of-a kind books, letterpress-printed artist books, cast paper sculptures, cut-paper works and animation––brings to mind the intentional growth, pattern, and arrangement one might find in nature."
