Midwest Chapter 2001 Traveling Exhibition

The Midwest Chapter would like to hold a traveling exhibition of bindings
next
year. The exhibition would be open to Midwest Chapter members and others,
and will include a published catalogue of the bindings.

During the 2000 Annual Meeting last May, participants traveled to Monterey,
Kentucky to meet Gray Zeitz at Larkspur Press. At that time, we discussed
the
possibility of him printing a book that we could use for our bindings. The
response by Midwest Chapter members was overwhelmingly positive.

Larkspur Press will be printing the new Richard Taylor collection of poetry,
Stone Eye, in early January. The book will be approximately 6 X 9 1/2
inches.
There are plans for Canadian artist Wesley Bates to cut a wood engraving for
the book. Mr. Bates recently won Canada's Hamilton Award.

Richard Taylor has been Kentucky's Poet Laureate for the past two years. He
has had several books published by Larkspur Press, as well as others by
Gnomen Press and Turtle Island Press in California. Some of the poetry in
the
collection to be printed in January was recently published in the July issue
of
Poetry.

There will be two editions printed; either edition will be acceptable for
the
Midwest Chapter exhibit. The deluxe edition is limited and will most likely
be
printed on Biblio paper. The cost will be $100. The regular edition, which
is
also letterpress printed, will number 600 copies and will be available for
$30.

The deadline for securing your copy of this unique work is the end of
December. If you are interested in this opportunity, please make your check
to
Midwest Chapter GBW and send to Gabrielle Fox, 3200 Linwood Avenue #2,
Cincinnati, OH, 45226.
