JCBA Artist of the Week

Our next artist is Julie Shaw Lutts. Julie’s work explores themes of history, women, geography, time, mathematics, memory and the sciences. She is inspired by vintage items both strange and simple, including maps, diaries, tintypes, photographs, handwritten letters, odd medical devices, keepsakes and relics, found in various flea markets around the world. Her artist books are interactive and thus we believe this video helped her book, ‘The Vote’, come alive so the viewer can experience it more fully. The work is meant to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Women's Right to Vote.

Real Mail Fridays

We may not be able to gather together at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts each First Friday of the month, but we can still celebrate Real Mail Fridays. And, we figure, why not do it every Friday?
