Congratulations POP-UP NOW II Artists!
Today marks the opening day of the Movable Book Society Conference in Boston. To celebrate, we thought it would be fun to announce the Pop-Up Now II featured artists. A big thank you to all of the artists who entered a superb selection of movable books. And thank you to our guest jurors: Larry Seidman and Jim Carmin who thought long and hard about each book submitted. If you are at the conference, ask Larry to see a preview catalog of the show. I know a few of our artists are at the conference and they deserve a pat on the back.
Pop-Up Now II will be on view at 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, Oregon, November 4 - December 16, 2016. More information and a full online catalog will be posted soon. In the meantime, congratulations to our artists:

The Society has about 400 members worldwide. The Movable Book Society and the Ticknor Society are jointly sponsoring the 2016 Movable Book conference in Boston, September 15 - 17, 2016.
