      Don Glaister and Suzanne Moore live on Vashon Island near Seattle.
      They share a home with their dog Rothko.

      Suzanne Moore is a painter and lettering artist who combines
      contemporary vision with traditional techniques. Her painting, drawing
      and lettering End their way to the surfaces of artists' books,
      broadsides and limited edition books. Suzanne sees books as
      interactive portable spaces created to transport readers, offering
      perspectives on such subjects as the intersection of art with science
      and philosophy, letterforms as visual subject, and Sequoyah-Cherokee
      writing system. She uses the book form to explore verbal and visual
      ideas through the interplay of word and image.

      Suzanne's books appear in private collections and institutional
      collections in North America and Europe. She is one of two American
      artists, working with a Wales-based team under the direction of Donald
      Jackson, illuminating the Saint John's Bible.

      Donald Glaister is a book artist now living and working in the Pacific
      Northwest. His thirty-year professional career in design bookbinding
      has centered on the exploration, development and use of unexpected
      binding materials, visual humor and spontaneous expression, while
      working within the classical framework of the European binding form.
      The scope of his recent work has expanded to include two editions of
      artist's books, Brooklyn Bridge: A Love Song in 2002, and Angelique
      and the Pearl Necklace in 2007.

      Don has taught binding and design privately and as professor of Book
      Arts at the University of Alabama. His bindings appear in
      institutional and private collections throughout North America and Europe.

      Frederic W. Goudy Workshop

      ko-lazh: A kind of surrealist art in which bits of Fat objects, as
      newspaper, cloth, etc. are pasted together in incongruous relationship
      for their symbolic or suggestive effect.

      Suzanne Moore
      February 23-24, 2008
      9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

      The roots of collage reach back centuries to Asian roots. The distinct
      possibilities of the process are virtually untouched in most current
      work. Beneath the deceptively simple appearance of the collage medium
      is a process that is more akin to an engrossing puzzle or strenuous
      visual calisthenics. The resulting pieces will be unique to the
      process and to the vision and aesthetic of each designer. Creating,
      deconstructing and generating completely new images is the process we
      will use to make a series of collage works.

      This class will incorporate mark-making, design, and collage
      techniques through individual experimentation. Painting will provide
      the finesse when necessary, and various attachment techniques will be
      discussed and applied. Students will complete at least three 2-D
      pieces incorporating various collage techniques and design concepts.

      Artists, book artists, designers and lettering artists of all stripes
      interested in expanding their repertoire are welcome.
