Book your Books, now!

Hiya K,

Hope you are having a great time with your family this's nice to think that we are in the same state for the weekend, even if it is on opposite sides! I took yesterday and today off from school, in order to have a moment of rest before the frantic summer semester. And now for a little promotion..

I'm on the Exhibition Committee for the 10th Biennial Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair and Conference in Silver Springs, Md this coming November. Appropriately timed with the historic political situation that we are in, we are looking for book arts artists from around the country to submit and display their bound ideas with the theme of "Democratic Organization." Straighten up your spine and apply!

Here is some additional information from the website:

"Are you trying to get your artists’ books out there to as wide an audience as possible, as inexpensively as possible? The10th Biennial Book Arts Fair and Conference is November 8-9, 2008, the weekend after the U.S. Presidential election, and in the spirit of democracy we are calling for you to take part! We want to exhibit your democratic multiples—the books you widely and cheaply disseminate—at our book fair. Participate in this experiment in democratic exhibitions. No jurors, no curators, just the books you make, straight from you, the artist."
