Geographies sneak peak featuring Let us Now Peruse our Ancient Authors by Marianna Crabbs

Our members responded to a call for any bookworks (including: bindings, artists’ books, calligraphy, broadsides, etc.) that relates to the exhibition’s theme of the Midwest or the individual states of Iowa, Ohio, Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kansas, Michigan and Nebraska. This expansive geographic area encompasses a variety of landscapes and has produced its share of artists and writers providing much opportunity for interpretation. What resulted is a wonderful range of pieces!

Special thanks to Bexx Caswell and the Graphic Services team at MSU for putting this beautiful exhibit together!
