BOOK EXPLORATIONS '98
It is my pleasure to announce to friends on the BOOK_Arts-LIST that
all the unique, expertly made artist's book entries sent here for
The New Art Forum's BOOK EXPLORATIONS '98 exhibit have been judged and the
following have received merit awards from the judges:
* The Highest Award for Excellence and Creativity to Sam Garriott-Antonacci of
Seattle, Washington for his miniature accordion book with beautiful matching
container, "My Favorite Season"; and also sharing the Highest Award for
Excellence and Creativity for the multi-page accordion book, "as in queen (the
abecedarium of a typophiliac)" entered by Leda M. Black, Providence, Rhode
Island. The judges felt that both entries were equally deserving !
Each artist will receive a $100 check from The New Art Forum.
* To Marilyn Hatch at the Wellesley College Library, Massachusetts, the
for Excellence in Structure for her interpretation of spiral design in "Dream
Labyrinth" in which the unfolding spiral page is faced with a road map.
* The Award for Excellence in Creative Humor to Linda K. Johnson of Pompano
Beach, Florida for ON THE LINE, made of a container with directions for hanging
the printed cloth pages on an enclosed line with little wooden pins - which
delighted the viewers.

shaped book and container, "Binding Ties". Again, the judges found both books

at Pelican Bay State Prison, entitled TRANSFORMATION. (A truly inspiring text
