Stone Eye: An exhibition of the Midwest Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers.

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 the 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.

The exhibition catalog consists of both an abbreviated print version as
well as a multimedia CD, which includes the bindings, readings by the poet,
views of Kentucky, and traditional Kentucky old-time music. GBW Midwest
Chapter member Pamela Rups of Kalamazoo, Michigan, is producing the Guild's
first multimedia exhibition catalog. For a listing of the contents of both,
click here. A deluxe edition, including a stone engraved with the stylized
eye symbol, is also available.

The exhibition will travel throughout the Midwest to the following venues,
where you can also purchase the catalog:
