  • Celebrates the art of the book

    Leather bound and one-cloth books with marbled end papers, gilded edges and print with an elegant typeface have always been aesthetic objects: works not just of literary art but of visual art also.
    The Palace of the Governors Press has created an exhibit about the art of the printed word, the art of the broadside — a simple one-sided sheet of printed paper, which originated in 16th century England. And, LIBROS, the Albuquerque-based group of the New Mexico Book Arts Guild has created an exhibit of books as art.
    Both exhibits are showing at Mesa Public Library Art Gallery throughout the month of June: explore these forms of books and the printed word.

  • 'Hangover' lingers with record $105.8M weekend

    LOS ANGELES  — Hollywood has hustled up a hangover for the record books.
    “The Hangover Part II” set a new high for comedy debuts with $105.8 million over the long Memorial Day weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.
    The blockbuster sequel also led Hollywood to a new revenue record of around $280 million for the holiday weekend, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com.
    That surpassed the previous record of $254.6 million in 2007. But factoring in today’s higher admission prices, more tickets were sold over the Memorial Day holiday that year than this past weekend.

  • Hackers post phony Tupac story on website
