The Book as Art

Fiber Study Group Meeting
Wednesday October 11, 10-12 at Guild House
“The Book as Art”
Cindy Hickok

 

A look at the art of handmade books, ranging from simple to complex. The program will include:

  • Looking at artists’ books in my collection
  • Schereen LaPlatz’ subscription series of books/ideas/directions
  • A simple hands-on book project, materials provided

From the time I first saw an exhibition of artists’ books at the V & A in London, I’ve been interested in handmade books and the many forms that can be called “books.” The creativity involved is enormous, and I hope this will spark our members’ interest, as an artist/creator or one who appreciates good books.
