Pop ups and other artist's books

On my desk top I have a few favourite sites that I'd like to share. So I won't be saying much and I hope you enjoy these sites as much as I do.

The Movable Book of Letterforms, designed and constructed by Kevin Steele, 2009. Master of Fine Arts program, Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana US.  I love the music.

Kevin Steele's amazing book was the winner in the Pop Up Books Exhibit "Pop Up Now", an international exhibition of movable artist books through October 14th. 23 Sandy Gallery, 623 NE 23rd Avenue Portland, OR 97232. Unfortunately the exhibition is over but the video gives a glimpse of the excellent books, of which Kevin's was one.

Book + Art: Artists' books from the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture, Duke University Libraries, curated by Christine Wells and Kelly Wooten. This exhibit is part of a semester long celebration of Book Arts done in collaboration with UNC Libraries. Start: October 12, 2010 | End: Jan 9, 2011 | Perkins Gallery.
