Wandering Book Artists

Event Date:

Location: 
Elizabeth Rockwell Pavilion, 2nd Floor

Come join the University of Houston Libraries' Special Collections department for a lecture and meet and greet from the Wandering Book Artists, Donna and Peter Thomas.

Artist's books are works of art realized in the form of a book and in 2009 Donna and Peter began a conceptual artist's book project to creat a traveling artists' book in a "gypsy" wagon which functioned as both a physical artwork and as metaphoric embodiment of their ideas about the changing nature of the physical book in the digital age.
