PSBA Members' Exhibition

The Needle & the Sword: The Early Women's Movement in Twenty-Four Hankies
by Lynn Skordal
The Puget Sound Book Artists Sixth Annual Members' Exhibition is on-going at Collins Memorial Library on the campus of the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. There are 60 works by 38 artists in this exhibit that opened June 2 and runs through July 30. The exhibit features a wide variety of book forms including some that are quite sculptural. There are also some very unique materials, methods of assemblage, and bindings used. More information about the exhibit can be found at the Collins Library website where you can access photos of all the books from the links on the right hand side of the page. http://www.pugetsound.edu/academics/academic-resources/collins-memorial-library/about-collins/artwork-exhibits-in-the-library/psba-sixth-annual-members-exhibition/.
