Feature image: Embroidered book ‘Remedie’ by Corinne Welch
A show and tell for the ‘Redesigning the Medieval Book’ exhibition at UWE Bower Ashton Library in Bristol takes place next weekend on Saturday 12th May from 12-2pm.
The exhibition has been organised by alumna Corinne Welch: “The display is an extension of the original exhibition at the Bodleian Library in Oxford earlier this year, and features 40 new books and artworks created in response to the Bodelian’s collection of medieval books and manuscripts. I’m very grateful to Professor Daniel Wakelin and all the team at the Bodleian Library for their help in facilitating this extended exhibition, and to Sarah Bodman at UWE and fellow book artist Kate Bernstein for their help and support in setting up the exhibition. It will run from 19 April – 29 June, and there will be an informal ‘show and tell’ event on Saturday 12 May, 12-2pm, where you can hear some of the artists talking about their books and working process. If you can’t visit the exhibition, you can download or view a pdf of the catalogue here.”
