Collaborative Book Project: Secondary Colors PMA Exhibtion

Collaborative Book Project: Secondary Colors
Exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art The Museum Library Reading Room
2nd Floor, Perelman Building
October 2013 – January 2014

Twenty-one members of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of the Book Workers participated in this collaborative book. Each member contributed an edition of sections, exchanged them with other members, and then collated them so the resulting contents of all the books are the same. Each member bound their own book, however, with no two books alike. Two additional books were bound and donated to artists’ book collections and one un-bound copy was auctioned at the Guild of Book Workers annual fundraiser.The books were also exhibited at the Cabot Science Library at Harvard University this past January to May.
