Midwest Chapter Annual Meeting 2000
Back to Kentucky

The Midwest Chapter Annual Meeting will be held in Lexington at the =
University of Kentucky the weekend of May 19. A full agenda has been =
planned, including not only the ever popular chapter annual meeting, but =
also a workshop and an exhibit of
Cuban Book Artists=20

Ediciones Vigia a book cooperative of poets, writers, illustrators and =
designers was founded in April 1985 in the city of Matanzas. Its name is =
taken from its location in the Plaza de la Vigia (Watchtower Square). =
The aim of the group has always been to use the most basic printing =
techniques, highlighting the importance of craftsmanship in the making =
of books. Their publications are limited editions of 200 and are =
produced with each binding and text element added one by one. The =
artists use recycled paper, plastic, and cloth, as well as
natural materials such as dirt, leaves and gravel to create collage =
images for both the covers and the textblocks of these books. They =
concentrate on poetry, short stories, literary criticism and works for =
children. Some of the texts are published for the first time, while =
others are existing works by famous writers.=20
Jeanne Drewes has had the opportunity to visit these book artists a =
number of times  most recently in January 2000, and will present a slide =
lecture about the group. In addition there will be an exhibit of her =
collection of books from Ediciones Vigia.
