Note from a CBAS member

After visiting the current CBAS exhibition at Studio San Giuseppe gallery on October 2, CBAS member Jo Diamantes sent in this review:

I'm not going to name any titles or drop any author names, but you really owe it to yourself to see the book/ARTS/book exhibit at Studio San Giuseppe at the College of Mount St. Joseph. It will inspire you! There are accordion folds, scrolls, interactive, leather bound and all sorts of other book formats. The subjects are diverse and the colors intense. There are serious to whimsical subjects. All are done by artists who care about books and the art of an artist's book. The installation is great. The books are well displayed wtih the artists' statements right there to read and enjoy. You can easily spend an hour just browsing to find your favorites. AND, many of the books are interactive so, if you are gentle, you can peek inside them and admire the book in its entirety—not just the covers. The show runs until October 25; make plans now to see it before it closes. I went yesterday and it was a morning well spent.

For more details on the exhibition, see blog post of September 25, 2013.
