In this age of e-book readers to hold a book in hand is somehow special. To hold an independently published Sternthal Book in hand is pure aesthetic pleasure.
Ian Sternthal is a Montrealer, artist and book publisher who is not afraid to make provocative art and to engage in the battle of the book. The collage pictured here was done by Sternthal and hidden under his bed while he attended Bialik, a private Jewish high-school in Montreal. It was not long before his hidden identity and many talents were unleashed!
