             ***********************************************

Maine has a number of regions that have produced directories of the arts and
culture in their areas.  In these directories are lists of individuals and
businesses in the book arts.
Brunswick, ME  has a directory. Hancock County has one. Waldo County... I
think there are possibly 20 directories completed so far.
 There will be a new website of the Maine Cultural Network listing all the
sites in the state and all the book arts in each region. It is slated for
completion in late December - early January. We are working on it now.
If you have any questions please send me an email.

> R.D.: I have done a few apprenticeships in Maine, and it's a wonderful

> The art museum in Portland, which may be called either Portland Museum of
> Art or Maine Museum of Art--it's the nice brick I.M. Pei building
> downtown--held an exhibit just a few years ago, 1996, I think, of Maine
> Book Arts. If you can get hold of a catalog of the exhibition, you'll be
> amazed at the bookish things going on in the Pinetree State, and it would
> introduce you to the scores of artisans I'm forgetting. All of them are
> working in Maine.<br>
> <br>
> Also, last I was in Portland, there was a book arts cafe at 61 Pleasant
> Street in Portland, the same place you'll find David Wolfe of Wolfe
> Editions. It may still be there. It's called Zygot. Good place for tea,
> cookies and inspiration.<br>
