Puget Sound Book Artists 4th Annual Members’ Exhibition

Each Puget Sound Book Artist exhibit seems to overshadow the previous one. This latest exhibition at the Collins Memorial Library at the University of Puget Sound is no exception. These handmade, one-of-a-kind works of art are all books that tell a coherent story whether they are popup books, accordion books, embroidered sampler books, or map and felt books. I can never get enough of the intricate workmanship and thoughtful intent that goes into each one.

We all missed the Opening Reception, but we can mark our calendars for the July 14th Panel Discussion: The Artists Vision: From Idea to Completion that will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Collins Memorial Library. I’m certain these books all have stories behind the story they tell.

Typography and fonts aren’t just used to tell a story; sometimes they are the story.

And sometimes the story is so perfectly illustrated that the medium truly is the message.
