Board Books and Other Marvels

BAG Lecture

September 25, 2014 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

For this presentation, Susan Collard will focus on book structures made with wood and other rigid materials. She will explore sewn structures, mechanical hinges (including slotted hinges), and a whole spectrum of adhesive bindings. Examples will be drawn from her own work, and that of other book artists.

Susan Collard is an architect and book artist in Portland, Oregon. She has been making one-of-a-kind collaged and constructed artists’ books since 1991. Enchanted by the lyricism of obsolete and prosaic objects, she works from an ever-changing trove of found materials. Susan holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University and a Master of Fine Arts in poetry from the University of Arizona. Her work is shown and collected nationally.
