Re: Book Arts Jamboree



The brochures for this summer's Book Arts Jamboree are in the mail.  If you
would like a copy please send a snail mail directly to:

queerbooks@xxxxxxx

In a nutshell, here are the details:

Join Us For the 1998 Book Arts Jamboree

Clear your calendar for June 7-12 because here's an offer you won't be able to
refuse.  Please join us for five days of making books, learning new skills,
constructing pop-ups, building decorative boxes and enjoying the splendors of
the Catskill Mountains.

The program: Mornings will be spent in intense instruction with some of the
top bookmaking instructors in the country.  Afternoons will be devoted to a
variety of fun mini-workshops, recreation and studio time.  Optional evening
programs include a show-n-tell under the stars, a gocco printing party and
bookmaking video pajama fest.  On Wednesday afternoon we're taking a break for
a surprise field trip.

The instructors: Robert Sabuda, who teaches paper engineering at Pratt
Institute, is the author illustrator of several award-winning picture books
and pop-up books.  His innovative pop-ups range from a joyous Kwanzaa
celebration to a swirling blizzard inside a snow dome, Miriam Schaer is known
for her one-of-a-kind books made from just about every traditional and non-
traditional material that's ever been discovered.  She's turned baby dresses,
sock stretchers, discarded toys--even old girdles! into wildly imaginative
books.  Ed Hutchins will be working with participants to create editioned
books and explore the wonders of tunnel books.  Longitime conservation binder,
Carolyn Chadwick, will be teaching decorative boxes.

The facilities: For almost 50 years the Cedar Terrace Resort has been hosting
visitors to the Catskills.  Set on 20 beautifully landscaped acres, the resort
offers comfortable rooms, tasty meals and a wide variety of recreation
facilities including an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, 9-hole mini-golf
course, shuffleboard, paved volleyball and handball courts, swings, bocce,
game field, nature trails and even a hill for kite flying.

The bottom line: We've saved the best news for last.  You get a spacious room
(double occupancy) for five nights, all meals from Sunday dinner to Friday
lunch, instruction, most materials, afternoon workshops, evening social
events, a field trip, use of the recreational facilities and other surprises,
for only $550.  This is just about everything except transportation to the
resort.  If you checked off "workshops and lectures" on the address
verification card, your brochure is in the mail.  Other wise, you can drop a
card to Editions and we will see that you get the information.
