CYNOSURA BOOKS by Peter Oey 黄金果 > Utrecht > NL



My name is Peter Oey, creator of handmade book-works. The book as object and autonomous form is my preferred way of expression because of the natural arrangement of a book and its three dimensionality. Making a single book has a total freedom of production and makes them distinctive from mass produced books.

I use my photography, drawings and graphic prints to create the illustrations for stories about reality versus illusions, nature versus urbanization, penance and redemption, inwardness and detachment.

The creative process of composing, constructing and manufacturing of the book has my main focus. This process is a form of meditation. And questions, thoughts and emotions are answered or newly created during this creation time. For the books I use reclaimed and ready available materials. The book-works are alla-prima crafted with simplicity of means and appreciation for perfect imperfections.


The satisfaction with simplicity, austerity and appreciation of the imperfect.
