Book Arts Display at Asheville Library

It was an honor and pleasure to provide a display window full of objects, images and information about the art of making books for Buncombe County’s North Asheville library, where I am a regular patron.

Papermaking, letterpress printing and bookbinding were all featured, with interesting specimens of the final product.

A special love of mine is books as objects of art, and several examples were on display.

I am just doing a trial run of my book arts camp in July, I hope to offer it officially summer 2017. Regular workshops are ready to go now, and I have several already on the calendar.

I am letterpress printing handbills now and will be addressing a couple of leftover projects before doing any new letterpress projects. But if you want a unique business card…
