Preview photos

Here are some photos from last night's preview of The Printed Page, An Exhibit of Artists' Books by American Printmakers, at Print Arts Northwest that Roberta Lavadour and I co-curated. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera, so these are just from my phone.

This is Diane Jacobs' tablets (based on her book Alphabet Tricks which you can see on the lower right). Each tablet has a letterpress printed page and a ceramic figure for illustrating the page.

This is a general view of the gallery interior. The works shown from L to R are: Sara Owen, Karen Kunc, Jessica Spring:

Two books by Daniel Heyman. He was invited to sit in during interviews with Abu Ghraib prisoners and 'sketch' in drypoints and watercolors. After he returned, he made woodblock prints based on the watercolors, and here is the resulting book (the one on the left):

From L to R: two books by Ruth Lingen, one by Cathrine Michaelis, and two by Barb Tetenbaum:

Two very fun books by Jessica Spring: on the left, a book of old proverbs, and on the right...what do you call those spinner things?

Two stunning books by Karen Kunc:

And in the other window, a book by Inge Bruggeman:
