Artist Book Collection for Telavi State University Grows! by Miriam Schaer

As some of you know, I will be in the Republic of Georgia this spring, working with Telavi State University with the Fulbright program! While I am there, I will be teaching artist books, and working to learn as much as possible with felt and other textile crafts with an eye toward their use in Artist Books! I put a call out-on Facebook and also the Book Arts List-serve for donations and have been overwhelmed at the generosity of the book arts community! Please feel free to see what's come in for the Artist Book Collection at Telavi State University, and I will post images as the books arrive. I leave at the end of February, and will be keeping a blog, so stay tuned!
