Welcome to the artist website of Don Widmer

I am a book and paper artist whose practice includes handmade paper, letterpress printing, and bookbinding.

What's New?

Recent Happenings

My artist book "Fanny and the Doll Corpse" is featured by Vamp and Tramp Booksellers during the month of October in celebration of World Architecture Day. Only two of this limited edition are still available. The tunnel book depicts Glessner House by architect H.H. Richardson and the suspects in the story are famous Chicago architects from the late 19th century.


I was interviewed by VoyageChicago about my art practice. You can read the interview here.
