100 Universes: An International Accordion Book of Prints



100 Universes: An International Accordion Book of Prints

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in
having new eyes, in seeing the universe with the eyes of another, of a
hundred others, in seeing the hundred universes that each of them see. -
Proust

Contemporary Crafts invites all printmakers world wide to participate in
the assembly of the world's largest accordian book of fine prints - 100
