[BKARTS] Spring 2008 Ampersand now available



"Ampersand" is the quarterly journal of the Pacific Center for the Book
Arts (PCBA). It has articles about all aspects of the book arts, from
historical commentary to profiles of working artists to practical how-to
tutorials. The informative articles are generously illustrated with
photographs. Back issues are available for $15 to US addresses (includes
shipping, CA residents add tax) and $18 overseas. Information about back
issues and ordering is available at http://www.greenchairpress.com/amp.cgi

The Spring 2008 issue is now available. In this issue:

History of the Book / Broadsides
At one time it would have been hard to know anything about anything without
broadsides. They were the radio drama, television news, billboard, CD ROM,
public opinion poll, and tabloid all rolled into one. Theresa Whitehill
shares some old and new examples.

On Collecting / Coveting Type
Holli Conger talks about her typography collection.

Influences
Kitty Maryatt answers the question "Is there an (artist's) book that has
particularly affected your own work?"

Doing Business / The Public Record
What information should you include with a bookwork or edition? Retired
academic librarian Charles Brownson has some suggestions.

Exhibitions / Conceptually Bound
D. Cichon tells us about a recent exhibition of artists books in Mountain
View, CA.

Influences
Emily Martin answers the question "Is there an (artist's) book that has
particularly affected your own work?"

Tools / A Studio To Go
Traveling often involves lots of waiting; Carolyn Leigh uses the spare time
to make books and shares her travel kits with us.

Doing Business / Getting Permission
Ever wondered if you could use the illustrations from an old book in your
own artwork? Attorney Sarah Feingold demystifies what you can and cannot
use.

Influences
Bonnie Thompson Norman answers the question "Is there an (artist's) book
that has particularly affected your own work?"

Book Reviews
People of the Book and three books on binding techniques.
