[BKARTS] MCBA presents SPOT ON:The Art of Zines and Graphic Novels

Minnesota Center for Book Arts is pleased to present our newest exhibition, Spot On: The Art of Zines and Graphic Novels.  This show explores the diversity of artistic communication inherent in these independently published and visually exciting works.

Zine: an inexpensively produced, self-published work consisting of written and/or graphic elements.
Graphic Novel: a work in which the narrative is related through a combination of text and art.
Spot On: an exhibition showcasing independent thought, freedom of the press, alternative narrative styles, and the diversity of artistic communication.  Highlights include award-winning illustration, unique storytelling, Japanese manga, underground publications, and alternative viewpoints from copy machines across the nation.
