Ask an artist what he/she wants today, and he/she will answerfreely, without any hesitation or complex. Thus 231 artists have responded to to onestar press's request by deciding, each in his/her own way, to simply say "I Want." The 231 responses to "I Want." have been brought together in a single book that recalls all the books already in our collection (onestarpress.com), which grows day by day, while it also articulates the desires of the artists who make up our world.
