Free Public Lecture on Artists’ Books

Posted by UCSB Library on November 4, 2010

Book artist Charles Hobson will be giving a free public lecture titled “Reflecting on the Making of Artist’s Books” on Wednesday, November 10 at 4 p.m. in the University Center’s State Street Room.

Our 3 millionth volume is an artist’s book by Hobson that challenges the traditional idea of a “book.”  His elegant volume  is a beautiful and sophisticated work of art and literature that showcases the poem “Trees” by W. S. Merwin.  It  incorporates elements of both classic and cutting-edge book design, photography, and creative use of light.
