One Book, Many Interpretations

Last Friday evening, the Chicago Public Library hosted an opening reception and awards presentation for a thrilling new show, One Book, Many Interpretations, Second Edition at the Harold Washington Library Center, Special Collections Exhibit Hall.

Curated by Lesa Dowd of our Special Collections and Preservation Division, this juried exhibition commemorates the 10th anniversary of One Book, One Chicago. Fine bookbinders and book artists from across the country interpreted the 10 most recent One Book, One Chicago selections through the art of bookbinding.

Juried by Audrey Niffenegger, Norma Rubovits and Paul Gehl, the show is open through April 2012.

Take a look at our slideshow from the event and get a taste of this thrilling exhibition. Congratulations to all of the featured artists!
