Angela Lorenz is an American book artist living and working in Bologna,
Italy.  A Brown University Alumna who studied Art and Semiotics in the
late 1980's, Angela also took many courses at Rhode Island School of
Design, continuing her studies in printmaking, letterpress, photography
and the book arts.  Angela spent a year in Bologna as part of Brown's
Study Abroad program and after graduation returned to Bologna, where she
has been ever since.  In 2002 Angela donated her collection of
bookmaking process archives to the RISD Library.  Items such as research
notes, text edits, sketches, mock-ups and models, test prints, printing
plates, false starts, and productions leftovers comprise this unusual
teaching collection.  

This exhibit will display Angela's finished artist's books with their
process materials in two venues, at RISD and Brown.  A published
catalog, with essays by Marcia Reed of the Getty Research Institute and
Stephen Bury of the British Library, among others, will be available for
