Expressions in book art

-A A +A

With the advent of e-book readers, the work of book artists is even more precious and wonderful, providing a very creative and personal vision of the art of the book. Savor and enjoy these unique, beautiful books, imagined and created by the members of BAG — Book Arts Group, on view at Mesa Public Library during October.
Handmade, hand bound, hand printed, these are not books in the ordinary sense: the books on display include a wide variety of binding techniques, assorted materials and embellishments, flag books, sewn books, accordion books and books that fold and twist, curl and turn. From work that is wildly creative and humorous to serious and contemplative, the members of BAG present an inspiring look at what is called “book arts.”
All of the exhibiting artists are members of the Santa Fe Book Arts Group. They use a wide range of materials and techniques to create the books, including a variety of bindings (accordion, Coptic, longstitch, stab), content (calligraphy, photography, poetry), forms (pop-ups, altered books, boxed books, sculptures), and paper (handmade, commercial, decorated).
Expressions in Book Art is a partner exhibition with a concurrent Contemporary Book Arts Exhibition at the New Mexico State Capitol Rotunda Gallery which runs through Dec. 13.
