Shakespeare’s Bad Quarto: a Modern Artists’ Book on the Earliest Hamlet April 4 - 28, 2016 in Leyburn Library, Main Floor
The Virginia Arts of the Book Center (VABC) in Charlottesville is a workspace for book artists who do letterpress printing, bookbinding, papermaking, design, and printmaking. Every year, the VABC creates a collective project; in 2015, the project was the Bad Quarto, an artist's book interpretation of Q1, involving more than 20 printers, artists, and book binders. Fifty-five copies of the book was produced. The book will be on exhibited on the Main Floor of Leyburn Library from April 4 - 28 in two forms: the finished, bound book itself and a display of the 64 unbound pages of artwork, graphics, and printed text.
