[BKARTS] Fwd: Finely Crafted Saturday 4/23/05 -- Morgantown, WV

Following is information about a wonderful book arts opportunity in Morgantown, West Virginia this weekend. In addition to a number of demonstrations, I will be sharing information about the binding of FAITH, FAMILY AND COUNTRY, a unique book with plexiglas covers and an inlaid brass medallion from the oldest commissioned battleship in the US Navy -- OLD IRONSIDES.
The book also has some other interesting features.
