      Pyramid Atlantic is pleased to announce the 2004 Pyramid Atlantic
      Book Arts Fair & Conference to be held in Silver Spring, Maryland on
      November 19 - 21.

      Please go to our website at http://www.bookartsfair.org/ for more
      detailed information including registration fees, schedule of events,
      accomodations, directions, list of exhibitors, etc.

      More than forty exhibitors will offer extraordinary books ranging
      from contemporary fine press and artists' books to antiquarian books
      as well as fine examples of handmade papers.

      There will also be a Book Arts Conference with ten speakers comprised
      of eminent scholars and practitioners in the field. It is our
      intention to raise the level of critical inquiry about artists'
      books. By coupling the Fair and the Conference we have insured that
      there will be a large audience of informed and dedicated book
      collectors, scholars, book artists and students.

      One group of speakers will address the issues around "Artists' Books:
      Conception, Production, Distribution" and will include:
      * Johanna Drucker (University of Virginia) - Professor of Media
      Studies, poet, book artist, writer
      * Mary Lum (Alfred University), painter, book artist
      * Karen Wirth (Chair of Fine Arts, Minneapolis College of Art and
      Design) - artist & educator
      * Tom Trusky (Boise State University) - Director of the Hemingway
      Writer Center, and scholar
      * Craig Dworkin (Princeton University) - scholar in visual and
      experimental poetry

      Another group of speakers will talk about "The Artist Book as an
      Intermedia Device".
      * Buzz Spector (Cornell University) artist and educator
      * Emily McVarish - book artist and letterpress printer
      * Phil Zimmermann - (School of Art + Design, SUNY Purchase) book
      artist, publisher and educator
      * Ruth Laxson - poet and book artist
      * Joan Lyons - book artist and Director of Visual Studies Workshop Press
