|Art Book by N.E. Skinner|
This year, the Kenyon Writers Workshop included a class on Literary Hybrid/Book Arts. While it was hard to listen to the presentations of the book arts participants during the readings (mainly because the visual and tactile components are lost on a large audience), the idea of spending a week in an art studio creating beautiful books had me drooling with envy.
|Handwritten accordion book by Emily Rials|
Amazing – a book all handwritten with musings on the Aenid (which, by the way, was always my favorite Greek saga – with Aeneas way more heroic than Ulysses, but that’s just me…). I did ask Emily whether she had typed the text before copying it down by hand, and she had. Still, a lot of work!
