The Book as Art V. Myth & Magic is the 11th edition of an art show celebrating artist's books, which is on view at the Decatur Branch of the DeKalb County Public Library in Decatur, GA. The organizers state:
Humans possess a fundamental attraction to stories and storytelling. Folktales, fairy tales, and myths are foundational narratives that bridge the secular and the spiritual and merge the factual with the fantastical. Art can challenge and disturb, restore peace and calm, uplift and inspire. Myths and magic transport us and bind us together in the world of imagination.
Fifty artist's books will be on display in the Fourth Floor Gallery of the Library from September 7 through October 30. I am very pleased to have one of my accordion-style books about Greek mythology (Eternally Damned, 2017) included in this exhibition, and you can find out more about this wonderful exhibit here.
