Here's a question for you.

What do Donald Jackson, Suzanne Moore, Mark Dimunation, Heather McHugh,
Priscilla Juvelis, Lynn Amlie, Carol Blinn, Theo Rehak, Michael & Winifred
Bixler, Vincent FitzGerald, Donald Glaister, Jeff Dwyer, Daniel Kelm, Ruth
Rogers, Katherine McCanless Ruffin, Zahra Partovi, Don Rash and Marshall
Weber all have in common?

Not sure? Why not ask them all when you see them at the Wells Book Arts
Center's upcoming symposium, Matter & Spirit: The Genesis and Evolution of
the Book? Our symposium will take place at Wells College in Aurora, New
York, from 29 April through 2 May 2004.

Early registration rates are still available until March 19th, and the
vendor fair is filling up fast. Detailed registration information, as well
as a complete program, are available at www.wells.edu/bookarts. Click on the
sidebar that says "Matter & Spirit Symposium."

In addition to four demonstrations and eight presentations, the symposium
will present a panel discussion on entrepreneurship in the book arts,
sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. An exhibition
highlighting the creative process in the book arts will accompany the
symposium. Participants will also have the opportunity to take a tour of the
Press & Letterfoundry of Michael & Winifred Bixler, one of the most
important type casting shops (and working museums) in the nation.

A vendor fair for book artists, dealers, and suppliers will run concurrently
to the symposium. Current vendors include the Booklyn Artists Alliance;
Boxcar Press; Caliban Press; The Dale Guild Type Foundry; Vincent FitzGerald
& Company; Granary Books; Hand Papermaking Inc.; J-D Press & Keepsake
Bindery; Priscilla Juvelis, Inc.; Kat Ran Press; Oak Knoll Books & Oak Knoll
