Hedi Kyle to speak at Focus on Book Arts
I recently found out that Hedi Kyle will be speaking at the Focus on Book Arts conference this June! Her informal address, Four Decades Under the Spell of the Book, will be presented on Thursday evening.
I am so excited – I have great admiration for Hedi and her contribution to the world of book arts. I took a workshop with her at the Garage Annex School a number of years ago (pre-blog) and it was fabulous.
Here’s the blurb on Hedi’s talk from the FOBA website:
This talk begins in the early 1970’s when extraordinary developments concerning the book and its future life took place. Today, craft people and artists are turning to the book, recognizing its role as a carrier, a container, unique as an object of unsurpassed function. Hedi Kyle will share her experience and participation in the movement to rediscover the book, recalling early experimental stages in book conservation, paper making and book art.
As if the FOBA conference weren’t already cool enough, this talk makes attending that much more special.
