Merry Christmas

At the Koffler Gallery.  Sara Angelucci's contribution to "We're in the Library" dedicated to the opening of the new Artscape building on Shaw St.  Sara had us make concertina books of increasingly dark prints made from tintypes of 10 unidentified schoolchildren.  The children "disappeared" as the prints darkened to obscurity.  The books were then  housed in clamshell boxes that also hold the original tintypes and the books and boxes displayed on a custom made library cart equipped with headphones on which are playing children's voices  reading stories.  This was a project that we got more and more attached to as it neared completion.  See the article in this week's NOW magazine.
Congratulations Sara.

Finishing Book Arts 3 and My Contribution to the Book Arts Fair

Recently wrapped up my Bookbinding 3 class. Here's a couple of nice results by the students:

Also, the 29th Annual Book Arts Fair was last Saturday. A student from Bookbinding 3, Brian, came by and took a couple of photos:
