Call for Entries – The Book as Art

An Event of the 2013 AJC Decatur Book Festival
July 19 – September 20, 2013

Artists who observe and interpret the idea of the book are invited to submit entries to the Decatur Arts Alliance’s inaugural juried exhibition visually celebrating the book form.

Artists’ books take many forms – from handmade and lusciously tactile to linear and informative, abstract and questioning to sculptural and monumental. Artists’ books can be a delight to the eye, a pleasure to the hand, and made tangible in forms that introduce us not only to new interpretations of an ancient concept but also to questions and ideas on 21st century form and format.

The Book as Art exhibition, July 19-Sept. 20 in the gallery at The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur, will be held in conjunction with the AJC Decatur Book Festival, the largest independent book festival in the country. It is expected to draw 75,000 book-lovers to downtown Decatur over Labor Day weekend (Aug. 30-Sept. 1).
