Masters of the Craft

Regular price $ 15.00

Contemporary 10 book artists have long appreciated the great value of learning bookmaking from an accomplished master of the form, yet recognized that the best teacher is not the one who merely has the technical expertise to create a well made object, but rather the artist who is able to reveal an original sensibility in his or her work. Though this exhibition affirmed a collective respect for the traditions of bookmaking among all whose book works are shown, it also demonstrated the power of the book to express the unique vision of each artist. These works were created by the craftspeople that link us to the history of the book as they inspire a new generation to define the book in our own time. Photocopied catalog with translucent endpaper and blue paper covers. On view January 14, 1994 - March 25, 1994.
