From Writer to Reader: CBBAG Online Book Exhibit

From the B.C. Book Arts Guild Electronic Newsletter:
The Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild presents Personal Visions: Engaging With the Book, an online exhibit by five artists, including B.C.’s very own Terry Rutherford.

From exuberant funkiness to quiet elegance, the range of artists’ books is broad, but all combine the familiarity of the book form with the unexpected use of materials, structures, and content. In part, the wide variety is due to the background of the book artists. The interaction of their artistic development in other art or craft forms with the book form is evidenced both in conceptual approach and in the use of materials and technical processes.

Please view the exhibit here.
