Claire Van Vliet: Celebration of Paper exhibit catalog

As I mentioned in this post, I recently visited the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center to take in the Claire Van Vliet: Celebration of Paper exhibit.

I was happy to hear that the Museum didn’t suffer any damages from Tropical Storm Irene. That means that it’s not too late to get yourself to the exhibit – it runs through September 26, 2011.

I picked up an exhibit catalog in the gift shop – I never do this. But I had to do it this time. The cover is a textured paper with a deckle edge – it’s the color of wheat. Does anyone know what it might be? I don’t see any watermarks.

I dig how it was put together.

I love how the folios are nested. I might have to try that sometime.

I wanted to find out more about the book, so I did a search on the publisher, Bates College Museum of Art.

Here’s what I found via The Old Print Shop:

Nothing new, but it’s still interesting to see how they organize the information.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
