Artists' Books at NMWA

I met my friend Ginny at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. First, we had lunch in the museum's restaurant and talked about the hill towns of Umbria.

Then we went up to the library on the 4th floor and we were absolutely enchanted by the artists' books on display - and for sale. They are difficult to describe so please go to this website to take a look:

My very favorite was "Redressing the '60s." The author had written her memoirs, focusing on the 60s, and attached small pieces of fabric from that decade to pages throughout. I want to return to the library to read the entire book.
