[BKARTS] Paul Johnson Book Arts Lecture in Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Book Arts Center and Otis  Laboratory Press invite you to a 
talk by Paul  Johnson. 
This free  lecture, will take place on Thursday, January 26, 2006, at Otis

(first floor  of the Ahmanson Building) .  Opening  reception 7 pm, talk to

Paul Johnson will  pull a library's worth of books  -  many his own, others 
made by British schoolchildren  - from a single suitcase! He'll talk  about the 
endless power of the book as an aesthetic, architectural form and its  
special fascination for children of all ages. Everyone will go away with  miniature 
pop-up books made in the palm of their hand - no tools  necessary! 
Paul Johnson is  internationally recognized for his pioneering work in
