Jaffe Center for Book Arts: CeL Interactive Professional Development
"A book is like a garden in the pocket." -- Chinese Proverb
FAU Libraries' Jaffe Center for Book Arts revolves around the Arthur and Mata Jaffe Collection: Books as Aesthetic Objects. This collection consists primarily of visual books gathered more for their artistic expression than for their informational content. Words and text were not the primary consideration in building this collection, which has been assembled within a wide parameter of aesthetics and book structures (including books that defy traditional structure completely). Join us as we visit the JCBA to view the wide array of books in many artistic styles. We will also visit the Letterpress Studio, home to four historic printing presses; two Vandercook proof presses, a Potter proof press, and a tabletop Platen press, all from the twentieth century. John Cutrone will be our host and guide as we explore this unique gem within our own library.
As always, these sessions are open to all FAU faculty, staff, and our eLearning Community of Practice partners. Please share the information below!
