The OPEN • SET competition is a new triennial competition that formed in response to the burgeoning interest and palpable momentum in finely crafted design book bindings in the United States. Sponsored in part by the American Academy of Bookbinding, it is designed to encourage both new binders and professionals.
The exhibition is intended to be a recognition of the beauty of the craft and a commitment to the public toward a better understanding of this art form. The exhibition will showcase 50 books and will recognize excellence in craftsmanship and design concept interpretation. The exhibit will also travel to Denver, San Francisco, Telluride, Austin, Seattle, and Salt Lake City in 2017.
Free and open to the public.
Runs Thursday, June 8 through Friday, July 14. Open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, weekdays. Closed Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4.
