This exhibit includes the work of fifty one binders. The invitation to participate was extended to former students of the Ecole Estienne in Paris and member bookbinders of ARA Canada.

The book selected for this project is titled La couleur du vent ( The color of the wind) . It is a collection of poems by Gilles Vigneault, illustrated and designed by Nastassja Imiolek under the artistic direction of Cécile Côté.
