Dear Book Arts Enthusiast,

Our 13th Focus on Book Arts conference begins on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, with the registration desk opening at noon, and a reception and opening of the Artists’ Shop at 7 p.m. The rest of the week is filled with exciting workshops, with both new and returning favorite instructors, and with evening activities to keep you busy. Highlights include:

  • Celebrating Summer Solstice all week long!
  • An extended daily workshop schedule for even more choices;
  • Two hands-on letterpress workshops, and an evening video and talk about font design and type casting;
  • A Keynote address by Laura Russell, owner of 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, on Books Work: Focus on Career Development;
  • A new Hospitality Night event with an on-site BBQ dinner;
  • The return of the Found Object Book Activity in a new guise: The Scavenger Art Project;
  • A full Work/Study raffle (so you can buy as many tickets as you want!).

Enjoy browsing the website, and please share it with others.

We hope to see you in June!

Your Conference Committee
