The Book As Object
Tuesday July 25, 2017
6:30 PM until 7:45 PM
This illustrated talk is for all those who love holding books in their hands and turning the pages. It looks at the book as a physical object and celebrates the vessel as well as its contents. If you think books are only made of paper, you are in for a surprise. You’ll see books from around the world made from palm leaves, wood, silk, and vellum that are rolled, folded, and strung as well as sewn followed by some of the amazing work contemporary artists are creating with the book form. After the talk, you’ll have a chance to view in person books from Susan’s collection. Susan has been involved with the book for over 30 years as an artist, writer, illustrator, designer, and reader and loves sharing her passion.
