Upcycled: Bound Journals Transformed

Next -->

Upcycled: Bound Journals Transformed was an exhibit featuring some of Scott Memorial Library's old journals that were turned into works of art by members of the Delaware Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers. The Chapter used Hygeia 1929 - 1949 and Scientific American 1950 - 1979 to create artwork that adhered to some very loose guidelines. They could: make copies or cut the pages up and then reassemble them as another book; alter a volume; make something inspired by an article in the volume; or make something sculptural or two dimensional.

This virtual exhibit highlights the imaginative pieces displayed at Scott Library in the Fall of 2015. We want to thank the Guild for allowing us to reproduce the artist's comments about their work.
