August Bookmaking Intensive - Salt Lake City, UT

Dear Colleagues:
A once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity awaits you August 13, 2001.
Book artists Tim Ely and Daniel Kelm are coming to Utah for a
collaborative workshop (see below). I can guarantee that this will be
the most popular workshop of the Book Arts Program 2001
season. Don't miss it. (If you do, you will have to endure hearing
from everyone how wonderful it was).  The Alchemy will change
your life (or at least your books)!

The Alchemical Myth:
Transformation and the Visual Book
August 13th through 17th, Monday through Friday, 9:00 to 5:00

What informs your thinking as a book artist? Join collaborators Timothy
Ely and Daniel Kelm as they guide you through the process of
transforming raw materials into an inspired artists book. Ely and Kelm
will create an artist's book based upon an historical example from the
rare book collections. Participants will join the instructors by
designing and producing their own unique books. The workshop will
include discussion, exploration of materials, investigations of
structures and technologies, and demonstrations of a variety of
techniques. Ex-perience the alchemy that takes place between initial
concept and ultimate object!

Timothy Ely and his one-of-a-kind books have been acknowledged with
numerous awards including a grant from the National Endowment for the
Arts. A chemist by training, Daniel Kelm designs and produces artists
books at his Massachusetts studio, the Wide Awake Garage.
