Between the Books
Book Arts Exhibition at Cambridge Central Library
Following the 10 week course Between the Pages, Between the Books presents an exhibition of the works produced on the course by the tutor and the students.
The ACE Foundation invites you to join us and experience a unique display of Book Art created by hand at Cambridge Central Library. Come and learn about this inspiring and expansive art form.
Book Art is a little known genre of art which is surprisingly rare in Cambridgeshire. Given that Cambridge is such an academic city, full of books and knowledge, it seems strange that one of the creative types, so commonly found in the city, has not seized the opportunity to transform all the local libraries with a wonderful melange of non-conformative 'books'. As this opening is still available, this is exactly what we intend to do! We hope you will enjoy the results.
Since 29 September we have been running a 10-week course in the art of creative book making, meeting every Wednesday evening at the library. Candida Bradley, the tutor, and her team of newly converted Book Artists are making books of all shapes and sizes to share with us in an exhibition, providing a little bit of something different for all book lovers. There will be 20-40 works included, exploring a diverse range of subjects, all displayed amongst the library’s own book collection.
The exhibition will be displayed in Cambridge Central Library between Saturday 11 December and Sunday 9 January. Part of it will then be transferred to Great Shelford Library where it will be displayed until Thursday 10 February.
