creative collaboration between the Arthur and Mata Jaffe Center
for Book Arts at FAU’s Wimberly Library and Karen Leader, Ph.D.,
of FAU’s Department of Visual Arts and Art History. Koppisch, an
FAU alumna, is a photographer and senior designer at the
Wimberly Library. Students from the Jupiter campus are invited
to add their ink to the archive by being photographed and/or
videotaped at the reception.
