We are excited to announce this joint Autumn Print & Paper Exchange with New England Chapter and Lone Star Chapter of Guild of Book Workers!
Here’s how it works: Each participant will create an edition of no more than 12 prints to send to other participants and +1 to send to LSC Events Coordinator, Jeanne, if you wish to participate in our online exhibit on the chapters’ webpages. After registration closes, you will receive a list with addresses for all your prints to sail-off to and you will receive unique prints made by strangers in return.
+Any method of printmaking or paper or book arts is welcome! Just remember, you must be able to make an edition of the design. Postcards are okay, but please keep in mind that unprotected items may get damaged in the mail.
Deadline to signup is AUGUST 17, 2018. List of participants and addresses will go out by August 24th with entry form and instructions on how to participate in the online exhibit. All prints should be postmarked by September 22.
Please note: you must be a current New England or Lone Star chapter member to participate in this exchange.
