[BKARTS] Last chance to see BOOK of ORIGINS - at Columbia Book & Paper Center



BOOK OF ORIGINS - A SURVEY OF AMERICAN FINE BINDING

January 11 - February 23, 2008
Reception January 11, 5:30 - 7:30 PM

The Book of Origins: A Survey of American Fine Binding has its genesis in an
international binding exhibition organized by one of the prominent Canadian
book arts organizations. The bilingual letterpress printed text tells the
creation story of the Huron people in French and in English. This traveling
exhibition features twenty contemporary fine bindings, by ten American
binders. The group includes established masters as well as gifted emerging
artists. Two works are presented by each binder: their binding in response
to the Book of Origins text, and an additional example of their work.
 
The binders represented in The Book of Origins: A Survey of American Fine
Binding have noted that the majority of book arts exhibition opportunities
in the United States are limited to nontraditional book forms. They are
committed to presentation of, and education about, the art and craft of fine
binding.
