Bookmarking Book Art — British Academy

News Item – British Academy.  Part of Literature Week at the British Academy for the Humanities and Social Sciences, an exhibit called “Turning the Page” and presenting the book sculptures of Justin Rowe, a bookseller in Cambridge, is being held from 20 May through 24 May.   The works are in the  “reverse ekphrastic” mode:  the bookwork is an expression of, or meditation on, the text of the book from which it is made.  The exhibit has attracted attention from the BBC and even the free Metro paper.  Looks and sounds worth a visit if you can skive work for one of the lectures and a browse round the exhibit.
