Please join the University of Houston Libraries' Special Collections department for a lecture and meet and greet from the Wandering Book Artists, Donna and Peter Thomas.
Artist's books are works of art realized in the form of a book and in 2009 Donna and Peter began a conceptual artist's book project to creat a traveling artists' book in a "gypsy" wagon which functioned as both a physical artwork and as metaphoric embodiment of their ideas about the changing nature of the physical book in the digital age.
You may visit with Donna and Peter, book artists, papermakers, and authors outside the M.D. Anderson Library from 3:00 p.m .to 4:00 p.m. to view and ask questions about the gypsy wagon bookmobile. Learn more about the adventures of the wandering book artists at their bloghttp://wanderingbookartists.
