I’m one of the artists whose work (shown above) is included in “Multiple, Limited, Unique: Selections from the Permanent Collection of the Center for Book Arts” in New York.  The exhibition was organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director, Jen Larson, Collections Specialist, and the Collections Committee.

“For the past two years, the Center for Book Arts has been involved in a Collections Initiative, which involves the in-depth cataloguing and preservation of our extensive collection of artist books, prints, catalogues, and ephemera. This exhibition marks the culmination of the three-year Collections Initiative. The exhibition will offer an overview of the history and development of book arts in the 20th century, and examine the role of the institution in both nurturing and promoting innovative artists and preserving traditional artistic practices.”

A catalog with essays by Johanna Drucker, Erin Riley-Lopez, Amanda Stevenson and Tony White will be published in conjunction with the show, which is on view July 6  – September 10, 2011 at 28 West 27th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY  and travels to Atlanta, Minneapolis, Houston, San Francisco and other venues.
