UW expert to talk
about book arts
Sandra Kroupa, a book arts expert from the University of Washington, will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday in the browsing room of the University of Oregon's Knight Library, 1501 Kincaid St.
Kroupa's talk, "Books in the Middle, Books on the Margin," will trace modern work in the book arts. She will illustrate her remarks with examples from the UW Book Arts Collection, which she has spent 37 years building.
"Her talk will give local residents the chance to learn a great deal about creative book artists and the techniques they use," said Sandy Tilcock, director of Knight Library Press.
Kroupa's presentation is part of a celebration of Northwest book arts. Other events include exhibitions at the White Lotus Gallery, 767 Willamette St.; Knight Library; and the Architecture and Allied Arts library, 200 Lawrence Hall. The celebration also features a talk about artists and books in the Architecture and Allied Arts collections by reference librarian Cara List at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Knight Library's browsing room.
