What is a book? While Kindles and other technologies have broadened our understanding of what can be considered a book, chances are we’d imagine an object containing written text, whether it is a novel, memoir, or guide. Yet the book is also a versatile and often personal art form, and many artists have embraced its historical function as a means of communication for creative ends. Featuring the work of ten different artists, The Art of the Book explores the diverse world of contemporary book arts in New Mexico.

Several programs and workshops will be offered in conjunction with the exhibit, so be sure to check out the exhibition poster for details.
