Description

This exhibition showcases a collection of hand-bound books created by individuals taking part in free community bookbinding sessions at North Branch Projects. Among many projects undertaken at the studio, those on display here are Response Books, a type of book that allows guests to interact with their neighbors and engage in anonymous dialogue through an “open-book” format.

Contributor

North Branch Projects was founded in 2010 by SAIC alumnus Regin Igloria (BFA 1996). It is an independently run project space located in Albany Park, Chicago, IL, that serves as a community bookbinding facility. North Branch Projects provides an outlet for exploring the creative process in a neighborhood where few resources for the arts exist.
