Stop by the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library at UAF to view the latest Northwoods Book Arts Guild exhibit, showcasing three books from the summer 2014 Books As Art exhibition. Each of the three was made in response to a vintage book from the Literacy Council’s Forget-Me-Not book store, and coincidentally, each features images of birds.


Linda Adamson’s Hello utilizes pochoir images, printed text, Khadi paper, book cloth, and metal. It is a modified panorama structure. Linda’s book was created in response to Hello by James W. Foley, 1915.

A Charm of Birds, by Margo Klass, uses pochoir images, gouache, and Japanese papers in a screen structure, with a casement. It was created in response to A Charm of Birds by Rose Porter, 1897.

Bird Gods, by Mary Baarlaer Maisch, is a concertina structure with a casement, and features Zendala tiles, ink, gold marker, Canson paper, and book cloth. It was inspired by Bird Gods by Charles de Kapp, published in 1898.
