About the Exhibition
My waking life and dream-scape have been filled with all things book for the past few months gearing up for CODEX VII, the expansive international book fair that takes place every other February right here in Richmond. So, I was thrilled to find a small selection of one-of-a-kind artist books (my favorite!) by NIAD artists to showcase here. Enjoy & pick up a good book!
