In the back of BILL, Bill Berkson writes, "The words and title for BILL popped out of a juvenile detective novel Tom Veitch gave me around 1980. Instantly, just flipping through this little illustrated book occasioned an emergency. The editorial imagination went to work. Soon, having typed a series of short sentences, paragraphs and stray phrases towards the bottom edge of unusually thin 8 1/2" by 11" sheets... I set aside the twenty-or-so pages and forgot about them."

The story was then shelved in a manila folder for 25 years. Berkson revisited the story in 2006 and decided the blank pages needed artwork. With the help of Mac McGinnes, it was decided that artist Colter Jacobsen would be a perfect fit. Jacobsen found inspiration for the project in a collection of postcards dating from early the 1900s through the 1980s. With a slow and deliberate attentiveness he began a series of drawings. He says, "I felt I was responding to another time, nearer to when I was born, a time thirty years before I was born, and recontextualizing these times into images for today." Within a year, the new BILL emerged, a fresh creation, in its present splendor.

When Harrell Fletcher was invited to produce the third book of the 1 Artist, 1 Concept book series, he chose to show the work of James Miles.

Fletcher encountered Miles' work in the early 1990s as a volunteer at Creativity Explored (CE). During his time there, Fletcher started a zine that highlighted individual artists called Whipper Snapper Nerd (so named by another CE artist, John Patrick McKenzie). James Miles was the subject of one of the issues (which is reproduced in this book.)

Says Fletcher of Miles' art, "His work stood out from the moment I saw it, and has been compelling to me ever since. James' drawings are both very everyday and incredibly mysterious at the same time. He is operating on another level from anyone else I've ever encountered -- almost as if he is physically in this universe but perceiving several others that are undetectable to other people. The results are poignant, funny, disturbing, and generally stunning."

The second book in the 1 Artist 1 Concept series is Postcards from Vermont by Tucker Nichols. It documents some of the stream of postcards he sent to Gallery 16 from Vermont where he was getting married in the summer of 2006.

In the introduction Tucker lays the groundwork of the book:
"I spent the month of June with my wife at her late grandmother's farmhouse in Vermont preparing for our wedding. We spent our days painting the house and raking muck from the pond in the company of an old blind dog.

"Before I left San Francisco, I told Griff I'd send him a few postcards from the country. I made these drawings in a small studio beside the pond using whatever materials I could find in the desk up at the house."
