Award Winning Book

CBAS is pleased to announce its annual Purchase Award from Bookworks XV, the exhibition currently on view at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County: THE BOOK OF POE by artist Carole Winters. The award winner will be donated by CBAS to the Library's extensive collection of artists' books in memory of Keith Kuhn, former CBAS Chair and Library Services Director. The selection was made by judges Arnelle Dow (Art for Artists program, Clifton Recreation Center) and Beth Brann (Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Graphic Design at the College of Mount St. Joseph).

The Book of Poe, Carole Winters
CBAS member Carole Winters contributed this artist's statement about her book: This is an on-going, in progress, hand-lettered and illuminated personal book/object for use in the contemplation of select poems by Edgar Allan Poe. She discussed her work with visitors at the first artists' walk through of the exhibition.

Our congratulations to Carole and gratitude to the judges. Visitors may see Carole's book displayed in the Library's Atrium through September 7.
