Geographies: The Midwest Examined exhibit

An exhibit of a selection of books from the Midwest Chapter of the Guild of Bookworkers. Chapter members were invited to make books related to the theme of the Midwest. This could be a state of mind or a physical structure. Each participant received a set of the prints which they bound into a book or contained in a box made to hold them. The books are currently on exhibit at the Michigan State University Main Library, 4th floor, 366 West Circle Drive, East Lansing, MI, March 31 to May 31, 2016. The exhibit will then move to University of Iowa Main Library for exhibit in July and August 2016.
