Founder, Dais Books
Dais Books is an independent publisher devoted to making artists’ books in small editions, often with handmade qualities. Each unique publication is a limited-edition object, stemming from an intimate and collaborative effort between artist and designers. Our aim is to showcase visual artists who are dedicated to experimenting with innovative methods of visual communication through a limited circulation of beautifully produced and highly collectible books. From its inception, Dais Books has been committed to raising the voices of artists who have traditionally been left on the periphery of the fine-art community by funding and hand producing a monograph of their work in direct collaboration with the artists themselves.
From our staff to the artist’s and organizations Dais works with, we are fully committed to uplifting the voices of BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and Womxn in Visual Art.
Shawn Bush is interested in reviewing contemporary photography and innovative methods of communication along with those who desire feedback for in-progress book projects.
