Earlier this year, The Scott Memorial Library at Thomas Jefferson University offered the Delaware Valley Chapter some de-accessioned bound journals.   in hopes that members would use them to make artists’ books.

The chapter was given Hygeia 1929 – 1949 and Scientific American 1950 – 1979. Each artist picked two volumes to glean from and was encourage  to create artwork  that adhered to some very loose guidelines.  The artist could:

  • make copies or cut the pages up and then reassemble them as another book.
  • alter a volume.
  • make something inspired by an article in the volume.
  • make something sculptural or two dimensional.
