BOUND online Book Arts Exhibition 16 – 30 April 2014
‘Bound’ exhibition celebrates UNESCO World Book Day featuring work across a wide range of skills, interests and charmingly bookish eccentricities.
There are so many reasons to celebrate 23 APRIL as Books and Roses day. Here are some of the best from UNESCO:
To promote universal access to reading, writing, literacy and education,
To promote cultural diversity, exchange and understanding,
To improve access to culturally relevant reading materials in local and regional languages,
To celebrate books as the global archive of humanity.
“Our relationship with books determines, to a large extent, our relationship with culture. In all formats, books embody ideas and values considered worthy of pursuit and preservation.”
– Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO
