By Hand | Women & Books
In 1900 Charles Meunier, a French bookbinder, cast a pewter and bronze plaquette of an anonymous woman at a bookbinding sewing frame. In the 1960s Warja Lavater started making wordless accordion books filled with symbols that would later be described as artists' books. This exhibit explores women's roles in bookmaking at the turn of the 20th century from papermaking to book cover design to women as book artists' at the turn of the 21st century.
