physics, cartographic imagery and invented languages, and are made by
hand using traditional and unconventional binding techniques.
Internationally recognized for his spectacular books, Timothy Ely's
works are in museum and library collections worldwide, including the
John Wilson Room, Special Collections of Multnomah County Library.
"Antarktos: Magnitudes of Black" is an exhibition that combines unique
manuscripts, previously unexhibited sketch books, along with edition
books made by the artist over the last 30 years.
