Book Arts Tuesday-Secondary Colors



Here's a collaborative book project from the Delaware Chapter of the Guild of Bookworkers. They describe it like this:

Twenty-one members of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of the Book Workers participated in this collaborative book. Each member contributed an edition of sections, exchanged them with other members, and then collated them so the resulting contents of all the books are the same. The members bound their books individually, producing twenty-one unique bindings. Two additional books were bound and donated to artists' book collections and one un-bound copy was auctioned at the Guild of Book Workers annual fundraiser.

The exhibition will be at the Cabot Science Library at Harvard University January 24 to May 19, 2013 and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art The Museum Library Reading Room, 2nd Floor, Perelman Building, October 2013 - January 2014.

If you can't make it to the exhibits, you can enjoy the works in this little film by Thomas Parker Williams
