We kicked off a year-long celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Book Arts at the Virginia Center for the Book. We debuted the specially-commissioned, commemorative print created by Kristin Keimu Adolfson, honoring our quarter-century in the practice of the art and craft of bookmaking. We also had a virtual toast—with a shared recipe for a signature cocktail to celebrate the folks who have contributed to the endeavor over the years.
In case you missed the festivities or would like to see the replay, the video is archived on our Facebook video channel.
Each limited-edition print is $100—a great gift for yourself or people in your life this holiday season.
