Show and Bestow--Catch It While You Can

This exhibit of artist books, gathered in honor of Ruth Hughes will be on display until December 30, 2009 in the Art and Print and Picture Department Galleries on the 2nd floor of the Free Library of Philadelphia, 1901 Vine St.
After the exhibition, the collection will be donated to Oberlin College's Clarence Ward Art Library.

Initiated by Alice Austin, the Ruth Hughes Collection of Artists’ Books was created entirely through donations, primarily from the artist-creators themselves. The resulting collection reflects the great diversity of materials, themes, and formats employed by book artists from all over the Unites States and Britain.
