"The Open Book" includes books that can stand, hang,
unroll, and be seen in their entirety.  The books
feature a wide assortment of experimental and
traditional bindings, tell stories, and behave as
sculptures, drawings, and prints.  In addition to
paper and board, the books are made of clay, fabric,
plexiglass, and steel.  Some incorporate found
objects, some are alterations of old books, and others
tell stories in such unusual formats as scrolls,
hanging panels, or boxes.
In addition to their unusual structures, all books in
the exhibit deal conceptually with a broad variety of
topics, ranging from obsolescence and war to women's
and environmental issues.
Many of the exhibiting artists have been working in
the book format for almost 30 years and are among the
top-showing book artists in the country.
