Hedi Kyle at Book Paper Scissors

Hedi Kyle will be at the Book Paper Scissors an Artists’ Book Fair on December 1 at the Parkway Central Branch of the Philadelphia Free Library with copies of her new book for sale. 

One of the most celebrated and innovative book artists of our time, Hedi has just published The Art of the Fold with her daughter, Ulla Warchol. She has a strong connection with Philadelphia: She was conservator at the American Philosophical Society, and taught at the University of the Arts for twenty years. Her famous Blizzard book structure was developed while she was at home in Philly during the Blizzard of 1996.

In addition to Hedi, you’ll meet more than twenty other amazing artists. The Guild of Papermakers, Lovely In The Home Press, Purgatory Pie Press, Tyler Book (Making) Club, and the UArts Comics and Print Society will be on hand, plus Second State Press and the Philadelphia Calligraphers’ Society with activity tables. These book artists, paper artists, and printmakers offer unique items for holiday gifts. 

In the meantime, here is a link to Helen Hiebert’s interview with Hedi and Ulla, which gives interesting background on Hedi’s career and the development of the book:
