Join VFH’s Virginia Arts of the Book Center for the Raucous Auction as the members celebrate their most ambitious project to date, a micro-edition set of fifteen distinct miniature books. Each book was created by hand in a variety of printing styles including letterpress, lithography, etching, and giclee. The books are the work of 27 local artists and made to a 2″ x 3″ scale. While editions of each book may exist in 20-50 copies, only 15 copies of the complete collection will be made in a handsome collector’s boxed set. Extremely rare and incredibly small.
These, and dozens of prints and books created by VABC Artists will be available–just as the gift giving season nears.
With food by A Pimento Catering, what else do you need to hear?
Creative Framing/The Art Box, in addition to generously sponsoring a number of frames, will be open that evening and is offering 10% off your framing order on anything you bought at the Auction. Also be looking for that Rare Book School class and the Paris apartment.
