[BKARTS] The Book of Origins - An exhibition of Fine Bindings at Syracuse University Li brary, 5 January * 14 March

"The Book of Origins: A Survey of American Fine Binding," Special Collections Research Center, 6th Floor, Syracuse University Library, Syracuse, NY, 5 January * 14 March.
"The Book of Origins: A Survey of American Fine Binding" has its genesis in an international set binding exhibition organized by Les Amis de la Reliure d'Art du Canada. The letterpress text tells the creation story of the Huron people in English and French through expressive typography and five original lithographs. Le Livre des Origines opened at the Bibliothèque Gabrielle-Roy in Quebec City in September of 2005 and traveled to the Grande Bibliothèque of Montreal and the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.
The exhibition will feature contemporary fine bindings by ten American binders. The group includes established masters as well as gifted emerging artists. Two works will be presented by each binder; their binding in response to the set "Book of Origins" text, and an additional exemplary example of their work. 
Other venues for this exhibition include Michigan State University, the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, the University of Alaska at Anchorage, and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
