Re: [BKARTS] Arthur & Mata Jaffe Center for the Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University



I visited the Jaffe Center on Saturdaywith a friend, and it's an amazing
space you all have created, John.  Light, airy, with much display space
ready and screaming for artist books to be unpacked from storage.  The
classroom space is also awesome.  Congratulations to you, Arthur, and Seth!
