IN INTIMATE DETAIL: THE BEAUTY OF HANDMADE PAPER

Salt Lake City, UT -- The Book Arts Program at the University of Utah
announces "Paper Interiors," an exhibition exploring the art of handmade
paper in intimate detail. The exhibition, which will be held in the Special
Collections Gallery on the fifth floor of the Marriott Library, will open
on Thursday, May 17th and run through July 5th. With the help of a pair of
3-D glasses, viewers will be able to take a fascinating look at enlarged
images of paper samples no bigger in actual size than the period at the end
of this sentence. In addition to capturing the structure of paper fibers in
intimate detail, the images themselves are works of art. "Paper Interiors"
will be accompanied by selections from the Rare Book Division's
collections, including works by Dard Hunter, widely considered the foremost
authority on papermaking in the twentieth

century. Book Arts Program exhibitions are free and open to the public.
(Special Collections Gallery Hours: Monday through Thursday, 8:00 to 8:00;
Friday, 8:00 to 5:00; Saturday, 9:00 to 5:00.)

The public is also invited to attend a lecture: "A New Light on Paper," and
reception on Saturday, May 26th, Saturday at 4:00 p.m. in the Gould
Auditorium on the first floor of the Marriott Library. The exhibition
curators, Charles Kazilek and Gene Valentine, will discuss their
collaborative investigation of the physical properties of handmade paper.
