Alabama Bound

There is a wonderful trio of exhibits at the Mobile Museum of Art at the moment and I highly suggest seeing them as soon as you can. Firstly there is the Illuminated Word which is an exhibit of pages from the first Illuminated Manuscript in over 500 years...the scale of this project is truly amazing. There is also an exhibition of the print work of Albrect Durer which is breathtaking. Finally there is an exhibit called Alabama Bound which showcases bookbing/bookarts and fine letterpress in the state of Alabama. It is a fine cross section of the work being done in Alabama in this field. To the viewer who has never really encountered Bookarts before it serves as a wonderful introduction. I was fortunate enough to be asked to be a part of this exhibit.
