Re: movies about books

Peter Greenaway's book interests were fostered by Tom Phillips, with whom
Greenaway had collaborated to produce "A TV Dante" from TP's
translated/illustrated/produced edition of Dante's Inferno. Tom is a major
figure in book art, and was the subject of a major exhibition in 1986 at the
Center for Book Arts. Those unfamiliar with Phillips' work may want the catalog

Bookworks by Tom Phillips

Curated by Richard Minsky, this show of Phillip's original manuscripts and
small editions bridges the boundary between book arts and artists' books.
The catalog chronicles 37 works by the London artist from 1970 - 1986.
Illustrated. 50 pp.
On view at the Center for Book Arts' Book Arts Gallery April 3 - May 16,
1986. $10

It can be ordered from CBA (+s&h) at 212 460-9768. This and other cba
publications are listed at: http://www.minsky.com/cba.htm

Tom's binding interests were abetted by myself and by British binder Pella
