Monumental Ideas & Time Flies When Your Having Fun

The Future of the Book is states a poster for the Jaffe Center for Book Arts.


The Jaffe Collection of hand made artist's books is housed at FAU's (Florida Atlantic University) Wimberly Library. A course in the study of book arts is centered around this unique collection. This summer's exhibit, "Time Flies When Your Having Fun", celebrated Arthur Jaffe's 90th birthday. I was lucky to attend and I recommend a visit to the center at anytime. - OR visit YouTube for an in depth discussion and artists books in collection viewed ...wonderful..... OR the blog

This little accordion book, retrieved from a gumball machine for 4 quarters was basically the show card for the exhibit. How much fun is that ?

"Monumental Ideas in Miniature Book Making"
Savannah, GA

is a traveling exhibition of more then 100 artists' books from 8 countries. I was able to view this show at the Savannah School of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, GA this August. It originated in Ohio - University of Akron...if you have an opportunity to see it ... I highly recommend this show as well. You can view it all online but it's not quite the same. One of my favorite book making couples, Peter and Donna Thomas are represented - always a joy to see their books.
