The article focuses on two recent books, published by Memory Press, Colors of Memory and Caudex Folium.

Book as Archive & Enclosure 
Alicia Bailey
Co-sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Chapter 
of the Guild of Book Workers

October 26 & 27 
Friday & Saturday, 10:00 – 5:00
Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library

$185, register online:

Regarding bookwork as interactive sculptural objects, Bailey has developed various ways of adapting traditional binding and structures to create books designed to hold dimensional objects. In this workshop, participants create two books to showcase and house both dimensional objects and flat artifacts. With great flexibility at the spine and sturdy, rigid pages, these books work well when handled or displayed as traditional book forms or as sculptural objects. Bring personal images and artifacts to build enclosures that are sculptural narratives or archives of memory.
