BUILT: Book art as a context to explore architecture, design, the built world, the built book. This international juried exhibition of book and paper art will examine the relationship between contemporary book art practices and architecture, engineering, landscape and construction as form, function and structure. Book artists will re-image the ways we as designers, of either books or buildings can inhabit and shape the world around us. Our disciplines have a natural synergy. After all, books and buildings are both kinetic, sequential, structural and time based. Taken a step further, book art can provide a framework for topics like urbanism, town planning, buildings and space. This exhibition examines the relationship between the built and the book.

Maps are beautiful works of art. In today's digital age, where we all have a map in our pocket, paper maps are in danger of becoming quaint relics. Recall pouring over an atlas or globe when you were young, dreaming of far off locations. Let's explore book art with inspiration from maps, atlases, cartography, navigation, pathways—real or imagined. Maps can also be internal, showing how to get from one emotional, conceptual or spiritual place to another. Map your journey through this inspiring world of book art.
