Book Artists’ Holiday Greetings

December 10, 2003 – January 31, 2004

GnuYear_copyAs a complement to its Artists’ Book Collection, the Kohler Art Library has a growing body of ephemeral material designed by book artists. On display are some of the holiday greetings sent by book artists over the years to the Kohler Art Library or to the former art library director, William C. Bunce. The greetings are from John Carrera, Steve Clay, Bill Drendel, Marta Gomez and Ivan Soll, Caren Heft, Tracy Honn, Amos Paul Kennedy Jr., Lewis Koch, Katherine Kuehn, Ronald King, Jim Lee, Jo Anna Poehlmann, Joan Soppe, and Claire Van Vliet. Other types of ephemera in the collection include small exhibition catalogs, artists’ biographical information, prospectuses for books, postcards and other correspondence.
