Book As Object

I'll be giving an illustrated talk at the G.A.R. Memorial Library in West Newbury, MA next Tuesday, July 25, at 6:30 PM. I'll offer a few thoughts about the physical book in the digital age,
trace the history of the book around the world,
 Curandero Accordion Book from Mexico
 Account Book from Japan
 Cuneiform Tablet from Mesopotamia
 Sewn Binding from Japan
Palm Leaf Book from Bali

and some of the amazing work being done with the book form by contemporary artists.

 Pamela Paulsrud
 Julie Chen
 Shanna Leino
 Laura Martin 
Gail Smuda
 Colette Fu
Laura Russell

There will be a display of books from my collection and an opportunity to handle them at the end. Join me if you are in the area. Please feel free to share my information and this post with your local library. I love to give this talk.
