"This show presents selected works of members and friends of the Center for Book Arts, and includes such wide ranging responses to the book as objects as Xerox, collage, resin cast sculpture-books, drawings, paintings, photography, etching, letterpress, typography, traditional and innovative bindings. The bookmaker-artists in this varied and rich show extend the boundaries of the more than 3000 year old craft to new heights, fresh territories." - Rose Slivka
