The annual exhibit of artists books made by members of the Book Arts Roundtable is now open at the Pierro Gallery in South Orange. It runs until April 22.  Two of my handmade books are on exhibit. Below are some photos and a poster for the show.

My first book below is about my paternal grandfather, Antonio, who came to the US from Sala Consilina, Italy in 1880.  I never met him but I have so many questions for him that I put them together in this accordion book along with photos and documents.

The next book is made with just two pieces of paper using an interlocking double accordion structure-no sewing or gluing.
