Izet Sheshivari is based in Geneva where he runs the publishing house Boabooks and designs books. Boabooks is dedicated to the close and intimate collaboration with artists, publishing their work as their work itself, as artist book, or occasionally as a catalogue or textbook. Izet Sheshivari's fascination for books and printed matter does not end with publishing. His dedication for books brought him to establish a collection of artists books just as well as to establish The Liberated Page a network of artist books institutions and enthusiasts. With his knowledge of artist books he has curated extensive and intimate exhibitions and is currently undertaking research on further publications and installations, mainly on artist printed matter.
