|This exhibition reveals the innovative ways artists utilize paper to express ideas conveyed in books and broadsides. Rather than viewing paper as merely a neutral substrate, many of these works employ unusual or evocative papers that integrate the mediums physical components, fiber, watermark, decorative elements, weight and texture with the final’s work’s text and image, or even guide the structure and intent of the book itself. In all the works in this exhibition, paper is a form of tangible memory, and demonstrates human efforts to convert the products of the earth into a medium for expressing the thoughts of one person to another, one generation to those who will follow. Illustrated 36 page catalog is pamphlet stitched with letterpress printed covers. On view September 28, 1996 - December 7, 1996.
