Josh Smith: Stamp Book is a reproduction of one of Smith’s 2009 sketchbooks, in which he combines rubber stamp imagery with his own drawings to create a series of works that respond to the visual cues provided by etched illustrations from natural history books and decorative patterns meant for the embellishment of personal stationary. As always, Smith explores his subject from every possible angle - repeating, rotating, and reinterpreting forms throughout his sketchbook, which survives as a palimpsestic record of his visual thoughts and responses. — Printed Matter
