Get Paper: A Blog Post About the Upcoming "Text Support: A Library Exhibit About Paper" and Sundries

I haven't heard or seen much about it, but I know that the show Silver Buckle Press director Tracy Honn and Kohler Art Library director Lyn Korenic have been working on opens April 15 in Special Collections in Memorial Library.

I worked with these library doyennes mostly last semester when I was writing my paper about Amos Kennedy, Jr. and doing a video project about artists' books. And I, of course, found them to be very helpful experts. I've found Lyn extremely forthcoming with sources and providing access to the art library's wonderful artists' book collection. And Tracy has helped me to understand what I was seeing when I looked at prints and talked with me about design.

Other events going on in conjunction "Text Support: A Library Exhibit About Paper," which is up through June, include the Friends of UW-Madison Library's Annual  Schewe Lecture by...wait for it, please...hand papermaker extraordinaire and MacArthur laureate Tim Barrett and an artist's talk by pop-up book man No. 1 Shawn Sheehy.
