Third Annual Paper and Print Exchange – Bugs!

We just finished up our 3rd Annual Print and Paper Exchange with 10 members participating. This year, we offered up the optional theme of bugs, which seems to have been fun for many of the participants. Check out the great work our members produced for this exchange and keep an eye out for the next print and paper exchange!

Stuart Copans – “What’s Bugging You?” (4 layer paper cut frottage print, printed using a #2 graphite pencil after attempts with charcoal sticks failed)
Karen Hanmer – excerpts from The Art of the Book
Barbara Hebard – “A Transformed Arthur the Theologian is greeted by St. Peter at the Gate of Heaven.”

From Barbara: I was pleased that the New England Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers chose the theme “Bugs” for the annual Print and Paper Exchange. This gave me the opportunity to finish the story of Arthur the Theologian. My whimsical collage shows Arthur, after a lifetime of digesting the Bible, winging his way into Heaven. The print is called “A Transformed Arthur the Theologian is greeted by St. Peter at the Gate of Heaven.” ) This also has a story to go along with it: https://johnjburnslibrary.wordpress.com/2013/07/29/conservators-notebook-arthur-the-theologian/
