A Bunch of Book Artists of ASU opened their 16th annual fall show ‘Press Release’. The show showcased new artist books from around the country, the local community and invited artists from Wasted Ink Zine Distro to display their zine collection by over 40 zinesters. Chris Adamson was guest juror.
The show exhibited an array of booklets, handbooks and zines made from various substrates; many of which were created with recycled materials, papers and plastics. Some varied from simple to very intricate and complex to exteremly delicate pieces of art. Many guests were able to pick up the works and flip through them. A pleasurable hands-on, interactive experience.
Overall, an amazing show that inspires creativity and sparks passion for DIY art and hand made and print medium chronicles.
