The Book Arts

This month, the Coaldale Public Library will be hosting The Book Arts, a travelling exhibition presented by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition program. The Book Arts "explores books as objects of beauty, personal expression and curiosity, and celebrates the imagination, inventiveness and skill of the artists who produce them. The exhibition is also intended to acknowledge public libraries for the important role they play as cultural centres in their communities." I went to see The Book Arts earlier this week and was very inspired by what I saw. Such amazing pieces of art all related to books! It truly is breathtaking and I would encourage my fellow book lovers to head out to Coaldale and take a look. You won't be disappointed!
