Remember that entry on Toni Morrison’s A Mercy?
My book was one of 50 chosen to be included in the exhibit that opens on August 26th. Maybe a trip to Chicago is in store for me!
Here is the original Call for Entries for those interested:
One Book, Many Interpretations: Second Edition
Call for Entries
Inaugurated for Chicago Book Week in the fall of 2001, the One Book, One Chicago program is launched each spring and fall to cultivate a culture of reading in Chicago by bringing our diverse city together around one outstanding book.
In the fall of 2011, Chicago will celebrate ten years of the One Book, One Chicago program. To commemorate this occasion, the Chicago Public Library is asking bookbinders to interpret the ten most recent One Book, One Chicago selections through the art of binding. You are cordially invited to participate in the One Book, Many Interpretations: Second Edition exhibition. This exhibition will open in August 2011 at the Chicago Public Library’s Special Collections Exhibit Hall with a Winter Garden reception.
• The exhibit will be juried to include the top bindings created for each title (maximum 50 books total). Monetary prizes will be awarded for the best binding submitted for each One Book title.
The shop will be closed January-March 2023! Look for me again in April. Happy New Year! Dismiss
