CODEX International Book Fair 2013
Sunday – Wednesday, February 10-13, 2013
“The first biennial CODEX International Book Fair took place in February of 2007 on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley. Since that time this biennial book fair has grown into the most significant book event of its kind. This year, over 175 of the world’s most distinguished book artists and artisans, private presses, and fine art publishers will be exhibiting their art and craft.
Student(with ID): $10 (multi-day)
The Codex Foundation exists to preserve and promote the hand-made book as a work of art in the broadest possible context and to bring to public recognition the artists, the craftsmanship, and the rich history of the civilization of the book.

“In this exhibition, I have arranged the works in thematic ‘families’ as a way of emphasizing how shared creative inspiration can lead to such enormously varied expression in the finished piece. Like different pitches in a chorus, they enhance each other’s voice by being near one another. I have sought to choose books that are a balanced orchestration of all their elements, communicating on many levels – from nuanced color to unexpected touch to layered or visual text. Take time to let them unfold slowly, and read them not only with your eyes, but with your esprit, and all of your senses.” – Ruth R. Rogers, Curator of Special Collections, Wellesley College
The exhibition will be up, January 21 to February 15, 2013.
