Fall 2002 Exhibit
Beauty and Meaning: Art and Poetry in the Book Arts of Mexico
The interplay between word and image has been an integral part of Mexican art and culture for centuries. The Libraries fall exhibition, Beauty and Meaning: Art and Poetry in the Book Arts of Mexico, presented a sampling of works produced by book artists in Mexico during the past 30 years, emphasizing the books’ inherently collaborative nature as both books and works of art, and the quality of their craftsmanship. The contributions of visual artists, poets, publishers, editors, printers, book designers and typographers were highlighted to emphasize both their respective talents and the inspiration they bring to one another.
