On Thursday September 27, 2012 Peter and Donna Thomas left Santa Cruz in their Gypsy Wagon (The Artists’ Book(mobile)) beginning their second Wandering Book Artist Road Trip. It will be a cross-country trip teaching book arts (and ukulele) classes, visiting libraries that collect artists’ books, and making artists’ books.
After crossing the Sierra, their first stop was Reno, Nevada where they visited the studio of Katherine Case’s Meridian Press, (check out her beautiful Nevada birds series of prints and cards)
Then they gave a lecture and bookbinding demonstration at the University of Nevada’s Black Rock Press (where Bob Blesse has a knack for teaching innovative book arts techniques).
