Welcoming the return to campus of the Logan Elm Press as part of the OSU Libraries Center for Book Arts, this exhibition explores the book as art. From unique hand-made objects to short-run fine press editions, the exhibition spotlights text and texture, color, graphics, bindings, fine and raw papers and unexpected materials. It explores the conceptual and structural stretching of the word “book,” exemplified by works produced at Logan Elm and other small presses, starting in the 1970s, selected from OSU special collections and loans from individual artists/collectors.
