Opening Reception: Monday, February 28, 4:30-6:00 pm
This new exhibit of student book art at Cole Library draws materials from three different sources within Cornell’s English department.
Handmade books are from Professor Katy Stavreva’s course, English 321, Medieval Literature: Dante from Block 8 of year 2010-11. To take a close look at this book art, complete with the feel of turning book pages, visit their electronic editions of the books at http://issuu.com/toryrw.
The SURGE! manifesto was made by students in Professor Hankins’ English 212, English Survey II course taught in Block 6 of year 2010. It was accompanied by a mock avant-garde video, The W’s Are Missing! (a ticket for the film is on display).
Chapbooks and brochures for the exhibit are from the archival collection of the Department of English and Creative Writing, the private collection of Professor Leslie Kathleen Hankins, and the Cole Library Archives.
