I’m thrilled to be showing my work at the 2009 Book Arts Jam--on October 17 at Foothill College. Come for the day and stop by to say hello.
Book Arts Jam details
Don’t miss Book Arts Jam 2009, a one-day regional celebration of the book and print arts, co-sponsored by the Bay Area Book Artists and Foothill College. This year’s event features an exhibition of artists’ books, hands-on demonstrations, and make-and-take activities; an exhibitors’ showcase with work by more than 50 artists and craftspeople in the book, paper, and print arts; a slideshow of member work; silent auction; and a full-service onsite cafeteria. Great for families with children, teachers, students, artists, and anyone who likes books. Remember, books make great gifts!

Recently, I produced a book about my great grandfather told by my father in a Humanities term paper he wrote when he attended Claremont Men’s College in the ‘50s. The book is a simplified binding with kangaroo leather spine and paste paper covered boards.
