BOUND online Book Arts exhibition 16 – 30 April 2014
Some Odd Pages celebrates UNESCO World Book Day 2014 with an online exhibition of Book Arts featuring work across a wide range of skills, interests and charmingly bookish eccentricities.
Many of these works are available for purchase. Your purchase helps individual Book Artists making unique books unlike anything you’ll find in shops or online through big corporate retailers. Support hand made books that are really special, a wonderfully intriguing addition to your own library or to give as one-of-a-kind gifts.
There are so many reasons to celebrate 23 APRIL as Books and Roses day. Here are some of the best:
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
Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO:
“Our relationship with books determines our relationship with culture. In all formats books embody ideas and values considered worthy of pursuit and preservation.”
Happy World Book Day 2014!
