Stone Eye Exhibition

Richard Taylor, Kentucky's most recent poet laureate, and Gray Zeitz,
letterpress printer and owner of Larkspur Press, have produced the
collection
of poetry Stone Eye. Thirty-one bindings of this book have been made by
bookbinders from the Midwest and throughout the country. All of these
binders
are members of the national group Guild of Book Workers.

The Midwest Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers has organized an exhibition
of these individually designed and hand-bound books. GBW Midwest Chapter
member Pamela Rups of Western Michigan University is producing a
multimedia print and digital exhibition catalog.  The exhibition catalog
consists
of both an abbreviated print version as well as
multimedia CD, which includes the bindings, readings by the poet, views of
Kentucky, and traditional Kentucky old-time music. For information on
ordering the catalog is our Midwest
website at

The exhibition will travel throughout the Midwest to the following venues,
