[BKARTS] Word & Image in the Contemporary Artist's Book



As   book artists know, critical writing is important to our field and I was
excited when contacted by a student at Colby College. Rachel Tobie has
organized an exhibit as her senior project and borrowed some books from the Portland
Museum of Art's collection as well as from Colby College.
