Deadline for Entries: August 18, 2011
Uncommon Threads seeks artist books and other forms of book and paper art that utilize handicraft techniques, materials or subjects as a way to round out, illustrate or compliment a central concept. Remember, it’s not just about the materials or techniques. Let’s dispel the myth that the handicrafts can’t have any part in meaningful art.

ADDENDUM – After taking some criticism for our Uncommon Threads show I have edited our call for entries to read as shown above. As my faithful fans have always known, content and concept in artist books have always been very important to me. But, apparently I left that out of the call for entries which greatly offended someone. I see this as a direct challenge to prove that we can find a happy marriage between craft and content. Please help!
