      The Guild of Book Workers' current exhibit, In Flight, is now available to
      view online. Point your browser to:
      <http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byorg/gbw/exhibit.shtml> to view this, and
      past, exhibits.

      In Flight, the GBW Members Exhibition, offers a broad range of bindings,
      from traditional fine bindings to experimental book arts structures, along
      with calligraphy and letterpress printed broadsides. Whether inspired by
      aircraft from the past, of the future, or the beauty of flight in nature,
      these bindings aren't limited to aeronautics. The theme of flight also lends
      itself to the whimsical such as a "flight of fancy", and to the dramatic
      interpretation of flight from a place.

      This exhibit opened in October 2003, in Denver, and is currently travelling
      around the country. Right now it is in Salt Lake City, Utah, but will soon
      take off for a landing in at the University of Washington in Seattle. Other
      sites include Emory University in Atlanta; Columbia College Center for Book
      and Paper Arts in Chicago; Columbus College of Art & Design in Ohio; Boston
      Public Library; Scripps College in Claremont, CA; RIT in Rochester, NY; and
      the final destination is University of Texas at Austin. Full details of
      dates and galleries are available at the exhibition site:

      A full-color catalog featuring all 54 bindings is available for sale. The
      cost is $25.00 (plus postage). An order for for the catalog (as well as many
      other GBW exhibit catalogs and publications) is available on the web at:

      For any questions regarding this exhibit, please contact the Guild's
