Virtual Event
15th-17th July 2021


This three-day series of online events centred around the theme "Where We Live" will include featured speakers, a juried exhibit, artist reception, a challenge book, and vendor marketplace.

Juried Exhibition - Where we live, a virtual, juried exhibition of contemporary artists’ book works
Focus on Book Arts invites submissions of artist’s books for a juried exhibit on the theme “Where We Live.” We welcome literal and figurative interpretations of “Where We Live”.

Challenge Book Project - Where we live, where does our heart reside, a challenge book project. Participating in the challenge book project is a fun way to get inspired and generate new work! Being directed by the theme and criteria we present will allow you to take new and creative directions. We invite you to accept our challenge and follow our prompts to create a new book or box.

Featured Speaker – Tia Blassingame : Book Arts Futures. Blassingame is an Assistant Professor of Book Arts at Scripps College, the Director of Scripps College Press, and founder of the Book/Print Artist/Scholar of Color Collective.

Vendor Marketplace - July 15,16 & 17th 2021

Join your friends and fellow book artists, and participate from the comfort of your home!
