      You are invited to an exposition on
      The Changing Book: Transitions in Design, Production, and Preservation
      The University of Iowa Libraries, Iowa City, Iowa
      July 22-25, 2005

      The book as we know it is ever-changing, in its physical structure and
      in its interaction with the reader. While the book remains steady in its
      role as a conveyor of knowledge, it undergoes changes in its structure
      and physical composition, as well as how it is conceptually perceived in
      the context of other information media. All of these changes influence
      how the book is designed, produced, used and preserved.=20

      The University of Iowa Libraries is pleased to offer an exposition
      celebrating the legacy and future of book conservation within the
      context of the evolving book. The Changing Book exposition will explore
      how perceptions of the traditional book are changing and how the field
      of conservation is responding to these changes. The exposition will
      provide perspective on the continuing role and preservation of the paper
      book, illustrate trends in print book production, suggest prospects for
      those beginning their careers and examine visions for the future of

      Speakers and panelists for The Changing Book program will include a
      variety of innovative book specialists, educators, and conservators such
      Mary Lynn Ritzenthaler, John Dean, Mark Andersson, Michael Bierut, Jim
      Canary, Jeanne Drewes, Anna Embree, Don Etherington, Katherine Hayles,
      Chela Metzger, Bill Minter, Paul Parisi, Roberta Pilette, and Pam
      Spitzmueller. The event will also include four book exhibitions,
      banquet, picnic, tours and a "tent show" exposition which will feature
      technical demonstrations, vendors, and informative poster sessions. The
      exposition will offer an informal and lively ambience for discussion,
      entertainment and inspiration, much in the spirit of a county fair.=20

      We encourage all who are interested and dedicated to the traditional
      book to join in the event. Book conservators, bookbinders, preservation
      educators, researchers, specialists, and students in library science,
