Board Books and Other Marvels
with Susan Collard

Thursday September 25, 2014 7-9pm (doors open at 6:45)
Maps/Special Collections Classroom, B69
Suzzallo Library, University of Washington

For this presentation, Susan Collard will focus on book structures made
with wood and other rigid materials. She will explore sewn structures,
mechanical hinges (including slotted hinges), and a whole spectrum of
adhesive bindings. Examples will be drawn from her own work, and that of
other book artists.

Susan Collard is an architect and book artist in Portland, Oregon. She has
been making one-of-a-kind collaged and constructed artists’ books since
1991. Enchanted by the lyricism of obsolete and prosaic objects, she works
from an ever-changing trove of found materials. Susan holds a Bachelor of
Architecture from Cornell University and a Master of Fine Arts in poetry
from the University of Arizona. Her work is shown and collected
nationally. For more information visit
