Library Hosts the 2019 Booker's Dozen Book Art Exhibit Through April

April 03, 2019

The 2019 Booker's Dozen Book Art Exhibit can be viewed through the end of April on the first floor of the U of I Library. The exhibit is a biannual juried book art contest coordinated by the Idaho Center for the Book in Boise. Seventeen handmade art books selected from an international pool of submissions for this year's exhibit were chosen. This free exhibit will be open to the public through the month of April.

The books in the exhibition may be nontraditional codex-format works, such as accordion fold, rivet, spiral or ring-bound, loose-leaf/boxed, sculptural or die cut books. They may be traditionally bound codices with "eccentric" features, such as pop-ups, folded pages, inserts, pull-tabs, or volvelles. Or they may be conventionally bound books made with or containing unconventional materials or artifacts. The Booker's Dozen Book Art displays a fascinating level of imagination and creativity.
