Pages in The Book of Craig

This is the last post in my series documenting The Book of Craig: A Creative Festschrift, a book I recently completed commemorating the decade that Craig Nutt worked as Director of Programs at CERF+. The project was three months in the making and includes contributions from over 40 people. If you haven’t yet read about the binding of this book, you can do so here.

When you turn the book’s pages, you get to know Craig through the eyes of those who know him – artists, CERF+ staff and board members, colleagues, and other FOCN (Friends of Craig Nutt). You can tell that not only are people deeply grateful for Craig’s work, but they also see him as a person of great character, creativity, and most of all, humor. It is no coincidence that the man’s last name is Nutt.

In the images below, you can see all of the pages included in the book. I indicated the creator when I knew it (for some pages, it’s hard to tell). In the photos where you see multiple pages by the same person, you’re actually seeing both sides of one page or a close-up.

If you’d like to see the book from Craig’s perspective, you can read about it on his website. You should definitely check it out – if you do, you’ll be rewarded by images of the Nutt-o-Rama Volvelle and Craig Nutt Paper Doll Set created by book artist and paper engineer Carol Barton.

Elissa, what a fantastic tribute book. And it looks like a fun party too!

Sadly, I didn’t get to go to the party. It was in Tennessee. 🙁

Thanks for documenting this, Elissa. I have added a link to my blog. Wish you could have been here in Tennessee when it was presented to me. -Craig
