[BKARTS] book arts event/Martin Frost lecture+workshop

Fore-Edge Painting Lecture and Workshop--April 14 and 16, 2005

The Southeast Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers and the Friends of
the Emory University Libraries are pleased to bring British book artist
Martin Frost to Atlanta to present "The Curious Art of the Secret
Fore-Edge Painting". Mr. Frost will present a free slide lecture, open
to the public, as well as teach a one-day workshop.

Designed to appeal to both painters and book workers (book artists,
binders, conservators, crafts people) of all levels, the illustrated
lecture describes the genesis and progress of this little-known art
form and will feature painted books from the artist's own collection.
The one-day, hands-on workshop will teach the techniques of English
water coloring onto book-edges. Participants will take home their own
painting, hidden under the gold edges of their own book!

Martin Frost teaches fore-edge painting in England and has taught the
art in Northern California. He has painted over 3,000 book-edges and
his work is held by many institutions, national and private collections
worldwide. This is the last stop on Mr. Frost's eastern US tour, and
thus the last chance to experience this unique artist.
