Philip Read Memorial Library

I have been invited to participate in the Philip Read Memorial Library fund raiser. The library has asked artists from across the country to donate artist-designed book covers. These art pieces will be available for purchase at the upcoming silent auction. All funds will go toward the much needed addition to the 87 year old Library building. Libraries are vitally important to our society, and especially to those of us involved in the arts. We hope that you will demonstrate the importance of books in your life by bidding on one of these unique functional art pieces.

Here are some photos of the book covers I created:

The book covers shown above are hand painted and showcase single edition re-marked prints of two paintings from the Tapestry painting series. These pieces are original, one of a kind, archival, artist signed book covers.
The pre-scored and folded covers are made of Stonehenge watercolor paper, provided by the library. After the artwork is completed on the book covers, they are then returned to the library where they will be filled with high quality blank papers and bound using ribbon in a side sewn method. Each signed artist book includes a short biography about the artist and will be represented in the auction as a piece of functional art.

The Philip Read Memorial Library silent auction will take place from November 11-17, 2007.


I will post a reminder as we get closer to this important event. If you would like more information, please call the Library Director, Nancy Norwalk at (603) 675-6866 or e-mail at plfdlib@mvgalaxy.com
