Long time Book Artist Richard Minsky is speaking at the University of Iowa’s Center For The Book on Friday, March 2nd. A traditionally trained bookbinder, Minsky’s commitment to the craft and pioneering techniques have contributed to the expanding field of book arts for over 30 years. His work has long challenged traditional bookbinding aesthetics, moving the book from an expression of craft to art, and influencing a generation of book artists to use the materials and structure as metaphors for the work. Richard Minsky founded the Center for Book Arts in New York in 1974.
