BOOK ART AT THE LIBRARY

The kiosk inside the Humboldt County Library in Eureka is once again displaying a wonderful show of book art by NORBAG members. Hedi Kyle is one of the most recognized book artists in the world. She is noted for introducing dozens of different book bindings and folds, many of which are described in her book, The Art of the Fold. Collaborating with her daughter, Ulla Warchol, they have produced one of the best "how to" books for book artists. This book is available for check-out at the library.

The current kiosk display features books made in the style of Hedi Kyle. One Panorama Book features the art of local murals, and another has two-sided Asian art. One of the Piano Hinge books was taught by Lara Cox at our March workshop and is made with hand marbled paper, Mylar windows, and decorative fibers. Also on display are examples of Sling Fold and Star Box books that are challenging to make, but fun to operate; colorful Record Pocket Books; Flag Books and Interlocking Loops; a Fish Fold on thirty inch paper; and Tree Folds on hand painted paper and Tyvek. One special book titled “Around the World with Itsy Bitsy Spider” features the familiar song in many languages on the pages of a Spider Book. If you're in the Eureka area, be sure to check out this great display.













Thank you Dianne Byington for this creative display.
