Description: This regional exhibit of artist's books will showcase the
works of artists who reside on or west of 105 degrees longitude in the

the fall of 2004, at Idaho State University and BYU Idaho.

invite accessibility to them. Therefore, we encourage books that can be
handled by curators or can be interacted with in some way. Original or

region of our country produces as artists books is what we seek to
highlight. Therefore, all types of artists books are appropriate to enter.

their use into campus and community life. She has lectured extensively

society. She organizes local and statewide book-related events,
