Claire Van Vliet
(1933 - present)
American book artist and printmaker, Claire Van Vliet enjoys a creative process which thrives on collaboration. In addition to her own mastery of several materials and techniques, she has worked with musicians and artists in other media to create unique objects for her workshop, Janus Press. Of particular note is her fine accordion book, Dido and Aeneaas, produced to accompany a compact disc recording of Henry Purcell’s 1689 opera of the same name.
