College Book Art Association
Art, Fact, and Artifact: The Book in Time and Place
January 8-10, 2009
Hosted by the University of Iowa Center for the Book
**Randall McLeod, Department of English, University of Toronto**
**Tate Shaw, Preacher's Biscuit Books and Visual Studies Workshop, University of Rochester**
The art of the book has been at once visionary and documentary, imagining a future that has yet to exist while finding inspiration from the resources of the past. The first biennial conference of the College Book Art Association seeks to bridge the worlds of book art, book history, cultural criticism, and curatorial work through appreciation of the book as an aesthetic sensorium. Along with session programming, the conference agenda will include keynote speakers, exhibits, tours of facilities, open discussion time, and portfolio reviews.
For the conference program, the organizers invite submissions for individual presentations, pre-formed panels, and studio demonstrations.
**Proposals Due June 1, 2008.**
The UI Center for the Book encourages graduate student participation and has secured funding to assist students with conference expenses.
