Welcome
to
Vamp & Tramp

The site is an extension of the original Vamp & Tramp, Booksellers, LLC online offerings, specifically for catalogs of artists' books grouped in specific subject areas. Please visit our website for a full inventory of Vamp & Tramp offerings at vampandtramp.com.

We always ask our printers and artists for back stories about their work. Muriel Rukeyser has a line that goes something like, The world is not made of atoms, it’s made of stories. That rings true in our world. Stories about the work give people something to hang onto, a way of approaching what may seem mysterious or formidable.

We hope you enjoy the books in the catalogs and stories behind them.
Subject catalogues are updated with new additions and changes often, so make sure you come back to visit each month!

Reflections of 2023

“Reflection comes between us and every other person and object in the world. An object or a person can be reflected in so many different ways. Yet the heart of an object or the essence of the heart can never be reflected. All faith and creativity is the hunger to cross over this frontier, it is the desire for pure and total encounter and belonging. Love is an affair between a reflection and its object.”
― John O'Donohue, Four Elements: Reflections on Nature


As the world guides the old year out and welcomes in 2024, reflection and resolve continue to prove themselves tried and true traditions.  We have been both grateful and inspired by the passion, thoughtfulness, and innovation we have seen in Book Arts this year; and proud to have the opportunity to be a connection between artist and collection.  Have a look at this selection of some of the most inspiring Artists Books published in 2023, and find your own reflection in the beauty of the art.
