From: US Book Arts List
Subject: Registration is now open for THE HYBRID BOOK


Registration is now open for the HYBRID BOOK, INTERSECTION AND INTERMEDIA, ( an International Book Art Conference and Fair, taking place on June 4-6, 2009 in Philadelphia, USA.

Hosted by Philadelphia's University of the Arts, THE HYBRID BOOK seeks to
explore how book art represent a multi-arts forum: two-dimensional,
three-dimensional, and time-based, one in which design, fine arts,
craft, language, and new technologies combine, compete, and intersect.

The HYBRID BOOK CONFERENCE will bring together established and emerging artists, scholars, librarians and educators to explore a variety of topics in a series of eight panels. The final event will be on Saturday evening, a dinner and a critical response to the conference and fair by Roberta Fallon and Libby Rosof of Artblog (

THE HYBRID BOOK FAIR is designed as an opportunity to sell works as well as provide an informal exhibition for artists and vendors to showcase the wide range of work being produced by book artists today. We invite both booksellers and individual artists to be part of this event. In addition, to encourage those new to the field, we are offering an Emerging Artist Half Table Rate and special opportunities for student artists.
