Next month! Codex Mexico Symposium in D.C.!

Friday, March 29th, 2013

mexicanThis joint CODEXMEXICO / Stanford University Library / CODEXAustralia event includes an exhibition, “The Book as Art,” and an accompanying two days (April 19 and 20) of free public programming at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington D.C. The exhibit itself opened on March 22 and will continue until June 15. Look here for a description and instructions on how to gain admission.

The Friday April 19th symposium is described here. On Saturday April 20th there will be an opportunity to view the exhibition and to talk with book artists and printers. California artist/printers and local printers and guests will display their work. My hunch is that you need to apply for admission to this, too, but I didn’t see specific instructions.

Monday, April 19th, 2010
The Codex Foundation’s monumental book art object will be picked up by Distributed Art Publishers (DAP) in the summer of 2010 (perhaps as soon as June) and the per-copy price will at that time be raised to US$150.00 a copy.

The current price $95.00 is still in effect but only for a month or two at the most. Please order your copies now from the Codex Foundation if you wish to stock up or if you are thinking of giving gifts.

If you’re not familiar with book art object, it is one of the most extensively illustrated catalogues of fine press and artists’ books ever published and without a doubt will become the standard reference on handmade books produced in the first decade of the twenty-first century. Read a full review of book art object, here.
