Not for Publication: In the Spirit of the Book
January 16 - April 6  2001


Hillwood Art Museum presents the work of over thirty contemporary book
artists whose vision collectively seeks to broaden our perception of what
defines a book. Included are objects that depart from the traditional
approach to creating a book, by exploring the use of unconventional
materials such as steel, video, and glass.
