Love & Misplacement: A print exchange exploring text +
Organizers: Erin Maurelli & Elizabeth Munger
We are soliciting participants for Love and
Misplacement, a print/broadside exchange exploring
text and image, sponsored by the University of Iowa
Center for the Book and organized by UICB students
Erin Maurelli and Elizabeth Munger.
By investigating the combination of image and text it
may be possible to define the point where text and
image blur. How is this manifested in print form? Do
you manipulate text & image digitally or are you one
to set type by hand? How is image affected by
variables like font, size, color & placement on the
page? All of these questions, and more, are free game
for exploration in your original work of art.
Print or Broadside size 11 x 14 - orientation up
to the artist
Please keep height / relief to 1/8 inch.
There are no restrictions or requirements on paper,
what ever you prefer to print on.

fur, or flocking) please encapsulate your print in an
archival clear plastic bag. www.plasticbags.com
