Our very own Lindsay Starr will be representing Cattywampus Press as part of a public roundtable discussion about artists' book at the Fine Arts Library at the University of Texas at Austin, Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

The Fine Arts Library (FAL) contains over 200 artists’ books, exemplifying different binding techniques, materials, sculptural forms and conceptual approaches. The Experiencing Artists’ Books event will present attendees an opportunity to handle some of these unique volumes. This event is associated programming for the new Visual Arts Center (VAC) exhibition "Fool’s Romance: Books from Aeromoto" curated by Allison Myers, Art History PhD candidate and 2016-2017 VAC Curatorial Fellow. Myers will lead a dialogue between local artists and bookmakers including Jason Urban, Artist and Studio Art Faculty, Lindsay Starr from Cattywampus Press, and Claudia Zapata of Puro Chingón Collective. After the dialogue, audience members will have the opportunity to engage with the unusual books in our collection.

This event is free and open to the public, find more information here.
