Ian Phillips is an avid collector of antique printed ephemera, discarded home movies, photography albums and broken carnival prizes. His award-winning illustrations are clearly influenced by this material. He has been running his own small press for 25 years. His hand-crafted books continue to be exhibited in galleries from Moscow to San Francisco and are in the possession of collectors around the globe. Ian sits on the board of directors of The Homemade Movie Project and is co-founder of the Holiday Arts Mail-order School. He lives in Toronto with his giant Boston Terrier and best friend, Fancy.
