Main Floor, Hawthorne-Longfellow Library
May 9 – May 29, 2012
Eighteen printmaking students are exhibiting their handmade artists’ books on the first floor of Hawthorne-Longfellow Library from May 9 – 28, 2012. The books contain original etchings, linocuts, and text within stitched, accordion fold, and flag-bound structures. They feature invented narratives, embellished how-to manuals, an elegant monster bestiary, and a multitude of other original creations. They are the capstone projects of Carrie Scanga’s Printmaking I class, made in collaboration with the renowned Portland book artist, Rebecca Goodale. The books were inspired by artists’ books from the Library’s Special Collections. Also featured in the exhibition are artists’ books by Lindsey Horowitz ‘12, an English major and printmaking teaching assistant.
