[BKARTS] Bookfest 2005 - Reminder

 New York City is the Book Arts Place To Be on April 8-9.  BookFest 2005
(www.BookFest.com) is roaring back into Manhattan, located in the Terrace 
Room and Promenade of the Borough of Manhattan Community College with more 
artists and a
wider selection of handmade artist books.

 BMCC is easy to find, just two blocks west from the 1,
2, 3, and A subway lines, and for those coming by car, one block off the
West Side Highway on Chambers Street

BMCC President Dr. Anthony Perez and his wife Eileen will personally host
the opening night reception on Friday, April 8 from 4 to 8 p.m. Those
attending will be the first to view the innovative books, many of which are
being shown for the first time. The charge for the catered event is $10. On
Saturday, April 9, BookFest is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and there is no
charge for admission.

In recent years the book arts has experienced an explosion of inventive
structures and new approaches to storytelling.  BookFest 2005 will showcase
pop-up, movable, tunnel, carousel, flexagon, flag, petal, concertina, as
well as conventional codex books.  Collectors and book curious visitors will
find volumes crafted from unusual materials and utilizing a wide variety of
printing techniques.

A comprehensive show of miniature books sponsored by the Miniature Book
Society will be on display at the Borough of Manhattan Community College
Library (199 Chambers Street) as part of the BookFest excitement. The
exhibit presents a wide selection of fine miniature books along with
photographs of collectors, designers and publishers.

BookFest 2005 is organized by New York bookbinder Carolyn Chadwick and Ed
Hutchins from Editions, a studio for producing artist book multiples in
Mount Vernon, New York.
