Re: [BKARTS] Florida trip



I am going to the Tampa, St Petersburg area from November 2 until November 15. Are there any book arts related events happening there? I will have a car and lots of free time.

> Considered is the first exhibition to examine the history of the leaf

> Noteworthy leaf books in the exhibition include those containing

> edition of the Canterbury Tales. Books were drawn from the collections
> of Northwestern University, University of Chicago, Brigham Young
