[BKARTS] Ed Hutchins: Design/Construct/Engage



The bookworks of Ed Hutchins are currently on exhibit at the Jaffe Atrium
Gallery at the Wimberly Library's Jaffe Book Arts Collection.
"Design/Construct/Engage" illuminates the varied, sometimes surprising ways
book structures can enhance and complement book content. Ed is brilliant at
making books out of non-traditional materials and using non-traditional
printing techniques, and his books are incredibly engaging through
structure. You'll see concertinas, scrolls, tunnel books, flexagons,
scrolls, and movable books, to name a few. And even a traditional codex
here and there. The exhibit runs through March 16, 2003.

Ed will be at the Wimberly for a lecture and a series of workshops that
coincide with the exhibit. Workshops are pretty much sold out, but there a
few spaces still available in a workshop on Thursday, February 20, from 9am
to 1pm: "Books from a Single Sheet of Paper;" ($29 registration fee,
includes materials; FAU students pay only $4 materials fee).

The lecture, "The Unfolding Nature of Books," takes place at 3pm that same
day. It is free and open to the public. During the lecture, Ed says he'll
be transforming a single sheet of paper before our eyes into a 56-page
book, complete with a pop-up, fold out panels, and a box to hold all the
connected parts. Should be interesting! Contact me off list for details
regarding the lecture or the workshop, or even the exhibit.

The Jaffe Atrium Gallery is located at Florida Atlantic University's
Wimberly Library, Third Floor East. Though an appointment is necessary to
view the Jaffe Book Arts Collection, the Atrium Gallery is open and
available without an appointment during regular library hours (quite early
to quite late).
