A Book Arts Life

Friday, May 21, 7-8 PM
Fee: Free
Limit: 40, reservations recommended
Annie Tremmel Wilcox, author of A Degree of Mastery: A Journey Through
Book Arts Apprenticeship and Co-chair of the Midwest Chapter of the
Guild of Book Workers, will present a slide lecture on her life in the
book arts. Using treatment and personal slides, she will talk about how

Miniature Binding: Structure & Design
Lecturer: Gabrielle Fox
Saturday, May 22, 7-8 PM
Fee: Free
Limit: 40, reservations recommended
Gabrielle Fox is from the US where she received a BA in English
Literature and Journalism before travelling to the UK to study
bookbinding. Fox has recently exhibited her bindings at the Barbican
Centre, London; Black Swan Books and New York Street Cafe, Kentucky;
Bibliotheca Wittockiana, Belgium; and in the Guild of Book Workers'
exhibition Abecedarium. This presentation will examine various
possibilities in the structure and design of miniatures bound by Fox and
other bookbinders and book artists, to inspire with the possibilities in
miniature, rather than the limitations.
