Thanks to everyone who helped make the Annual Meeting in Austin last weekend a success. Special thanks to Austin Book Arts Center (atxbookarts.org) and Mary Baughman for hosting and helping to arrange several interesting activities, including letterpress printing of our own commemorative coaster! The studio tour of Flatbed Press (flatbedpress.com) and print demo by Alfonso Huerta (dosmundos.net) were excellent, as was the open studio tour of Smith and Hawley (smithandhawley.com) from paper toy maker Kyle Hawley. Our tag sale/swap was a success too – an entire hallway was packed with goodies for sale and giveaway. Our business meeting took place in the beautiful space at CAMIBAart, which had just opened a new show the night before. We all came away feeling quite inspired, it was an entire building full of creative energy!
We hope that everyone will be able to join us for the next Annual Meeting in Dallas Texas, set to coincide with the DeGolyer Triennial Book Binding Competition in 2018.
