Call to Artists Renew: Altered Books From Britain to Brevard




 Enthusiastic and interested local artists wanted to participate
in an exciting altered book project culminating in an exhibition at
Satellite Beach Library in March 2012




Participants will select a book that has been sent from the Centre for Fine Print Research UK and described as “lovely, old, and British.” They will then turn their books into new artworks. The end product may resemble a book or be transformed into something altogether different! Thus, old, unwanted books will be renewed and become innovative artworks. No experience in book arts needed.
Completed artworks are due in February 2012. All artworks will be returned to artists at the end of the exhibition. Books are available on a first come first served basis. For further information and to select your book contact Paula Steere on steerepj2@aol.com or 321-917-3236.
Coverage of the exhibition will also appear in the Book Arts Newsletter, Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England, UK.
