News from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune: “Marking Time,” the [Minnesota Center for Book Arts’] new show, features 50 contemporary books on the theme of time, all handmade by members of the Guild of Book Workers. They are amazing books bound in leather or linen, printed on handmade paper, etched, bejeweled, hand-drawn, festooned with ribbons, bits of metal and even eggshell mosaics. Fashioned with excruciating patience, they are made by people who obviously care deeply about words and how they come to have meaning.” read the full article here.
