Call for Entries - Artists Books: Creative Structures

Philadelphia Center for the Book is seeking member artists to participate in Artists' Books: Creative Structures, an exhibition at Allens Lane Art Center. This exhibition will take place from September 8 - October 26, 2012.

Members are invited to submit work, old and new, that celebrates the exhibition's theme of book structure. Applicants are encouraged to submit traditional and non-traditional books that explore this varied and open-ended concept. Some suggested formats are accordion, single-sheet, jacob's ladder, tunnel book, pop-ups, flag books, flexagons, wallbound pieces, etc. This gallery is open to the public and unmonitored. While some accepted pieces will be displayed in cases, artists are encouraged to also submit pieces that are made to be read, held, and explored. 

HOW TO MAKE BOOKS author Esther K Smith of Purgatory Pie Press in New York, NY will select work from submissions. There is no fee for members to submit, and, while submissions are open only to members of Philadelphia Center for the Book, anyone may become a member with submission.
