BookOpolis 2012, a Colossal Book Arts Extravaganza. BookOpolis 2012 takes place on September 21-22 at Asheville BookWorks. As always entries from across N. America and other Continents are exhibited during the BookOpolis weekend. Friday evening we will raffle the Beer City Prints Portfolio featuring 24 fanciful wood engravings and artist prints. Saturday is the annual open house with demos and a few hands-on in the studio. The Juror’s Collection as selected by Tatana Kellner will be on view through November 2012 in the BookWorks Gallery. Please download a printable copy of the prospectus or have a hard copy in your hand by mail. Simply e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) your real-life mailing address and we?ll post it to you.
The theme, Editorial Content: Spine-Tickling Artist Books, is the brainchild of Tatana Kellner. Tana is the 2012 juror for the Juror?s Collection and her selection of BookOpolis entries will remain on display through the end of November 2012 in the BookWorks Gallery.
