He has taught artist book and print production classes at SUNY Purchase, Cooper Union, MICA, and most recently at the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College Chicago. In 1994 he founded JAB — Journal of Artists’ Books to provide a forum for critical inquiry into artist books and as a platform for the presentation of commissioned artist books that were inserted with most of the issues.
