What is The Changing Book?
The book, as we know it, is ever-changing in its structure and physical
composition as well as in how it is perceived in the context of other
media. The Changing Book exposition will provide perspective on the
continuing role of the paper book, trends in production, its
preservation, and visions for the future.

Set in beautiful eastern Iowa at the height of summer, the exposition
will include speakers (Mary Lynn Ritzenthaler, National Archives; John
Dean, Cornell University and Chris Clarkson), panels, book exhibitions,
tours and a "tent show" featuring technical demonstrations, vendors,
poster sessions, food, fun and music. The exposition will offer an
informal, lively ambience for discussion, entertainment and inspiration,
much in the spirit of a county fair.

Professionals and students dedicated to the traditional book and its
preservation in the digital age are invited to attend. Early bird
registration (by June 20, 2005) provides a remarkable discount. For more
information or to register call 1-800-551-9029 or check online at
