What is a Book?

We are pleased to have on display, The Book Arts which is a travelling exhibition featuring twenty–nine examples of works by eighteen artists from across Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.

What is a book?

The answer seems fairly obvious, but for those who dabble in the book arts the answer can be very broad. This exhibition offers many variations on the book form and explores books as objects of beauty, personal expression and curiosity, as well as celebrating the imagination, inventiveness and skill of the artists who produce them.

Come and observe how typography, illustration, binding, paper making, and marbling are demonstrated in this selection of books. The exhibition runs from Monday, July 4 to Monday, August 24.

Library Closed

The SAIT Library will be closed Monday, August 1, 2011 for the Heritage Day Holiday.

The library will resume normal Summer hours on August 2.
