The Atlas Imagined: A Collaborative Project
39 Members of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers made an edition of maps of a place, real or imagined. Meeting in September 2014, participating members exchanged maps to make into an individual book or house in a unique box. This exhibition will reveal the range of artistic creation brought to this collaborative effort. The Delaware Valley Chapter – one of 10 regional chapters of the Guild of Book Workers – is located in the the tri-state area with activities centered in Philadelphia. The GBW promotes interest in and awareness of the tradition of the book and paper arts. Its diverse membership includes book artists, book conservators, fine binders, calligraphers, librarians, paper marblers, teachers, photographers, printmakers, and graphic designers.
Exhibition Dates: April 10 - June 6, 2015
