                     AWARD CEREMONY AND EXHIBITION
                          OF SELECTED ENTRIES
                           MARCH 4-26, 1999

             Linda K. Johnson, a graphic design professor at
             Florida Atlantic University, is the winner of the
             1998 Florida Artists' Book Prize.
             The $2,000 prize will be presented to her at the
             award ceremony to be held in the Bienes Center
             on March 4, from 6-8 pm.

             Johnson's award-winning book, TWENTY-SIX LETTERS,
             is a collection of letters written by Lewis Carroll,
             author of Alice in Wonderland. The 26 pages of the
             book are envelopes, one for each letter of the
             alphabet, containing a Lewis Carroll letter to a
             friend. The alphabet is represented by character
             illustrations based on those found in Carroll's
             stories and verses. Many of the letters were written
             by Carroll to his young friends, and contain stories,
             riddles, acrostic verses, rebus pictures, and
             instructions for his word games.  The book is made
             from Mashi paper envelopes, Fabiano Ingres Crema paper
             for letters, piano hinge binding, and is housed in
             a box covered in Momi hand-made paper. Edition of 10.

             The reception and award ceremony will also celebrate
             the opening of an exhibition of selected entries
             for the prize, which will be on display March 4 through
             26 in the Bienes Center.

             The annual Florida Artists' Book Prize was established
             in 1997 by the Bienes Center for the Literary Arts
             and the Florida Center for the Book.
