(Fwd) CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS PUBLICATIONS (last part)
A group show of contemporary London book artists from the Book
Works Gallery. Book Works was founded in London in 1984 to
promote the work of artists using the book form as their medium
of expression. The gallery provides a unique venue for work
in this field, and has been instrumental in encouraging
artists to experiment and explore different ways of using book
forms. All the artists in this exhibition have had a close
and consistent relationship with Book Works since its
inauguration. The founders of Book Works considered the
Center for Book Arts inspirational in their conception and
development of the organization, and this connection adds to
the importance of their
presentation in the Center for Book Arts' Book Arts Gallery.

Great Walls of China
Photographs by Franc Palaia. Mainland China was once the most
virulently anti-American society on earth. Since Mao, China
adopted at least some of the ways of its erstwhile nemesis. An
American visitor can feel drawn to the strangest things in the
People's Republic. Billboards, posters all over the walls,
and some murals, for example. To western eyes, unable to read
the text and understand these billboards and advertisements,
the meanings remain obscured, and the familiar roadside
incongruously shrouded in mystery. Happily, the same new
which has encouraged the fabrication of these billboards
Palaia to photograph them, so that he might share with us some
the wonder and bemusement they provoked in him. With a
by Peter Frank and an introduction by Richard Haas. 1984
