Certainly several shows could be made of the works submitted. After looking over and over at the works and reading the statements, I have become quite attached to them. Making cuts in the first round was hard but the final round was like turning away old friends."

The Grolier Club, New York, NY, USA

A Design Binding is a singularly considered and beautifully executed book covering—a unique work of art in the form of the book. This exhibition features a juried collection of recently made books submitted from around the world, a definitive statement on excellence in fine binding today.

OPEN • SET is a competition and exhibition, a triennial event featuring finely crafted design bindings. Sponsored by the American Academy of Bookbinding, it is designed to encourage both new binders and professionals, and is open to binders around the world. This title reflects the two categories in which the binders compete—the Open Category, in which the artist chooses which textblock to bind, and the Set Category, in which participants bind the same textblock.

All entries were reviewed by a blind jury of three professional binders. The three members of the jury are Monique Lallier, Mark Esser, and Patricia Owen.

(retro)(intro)spection: moving past into the forward

02-07-2020 - 05-31-2020

San Francisco Center for the book, San Francisco, California, USA

Artists are frequently inspired by the past and aim to make work which speaks to future audiences, subsequent generations. Tandem processes of introspective questioning and retrospective storytelling often come together in the artist book format—giving reader and creator the opportunity for personal reflection. Artists books tell us stories by using narrative, structure, materials.

(retro)(intro)spection explores the crossroads where artists books and artistic process intersect. When do our amorphous ideas become real, at what point? What is the role of introspection and one’s personal past when applied to artists books? In the act of looking back as well as in, artists are inspired by their body of work, regarding the path or discovering the throughine which brings them to the present.
