I'm Sam...
making books

By the name SAM_making books Saskia Overzee and Amanda Butterworth have found each other in the art of bookmaking. Combining their qualities and strengths makes every new project a challenge for themselves, but certainly also for the reader, from whom -when experiencing their books- an active role is often expected. Saskia's background lays in photography and her strength lies in creating inspiring images and working on a vast archive of found image’s, quotes and text. Amanda's background lays in graphic design and her strength lies in devising and sharpening a storyline from concept to execution bringing the totality of images and texts to a higher level. 
SAM is currently working on their third book project.
