Book Arts Hotspots Worldwide
Peter Verheyen of Syracuse University is a hero in the book arts world. He does so much to keep it connected across the globe. First and foremost is the Book Arts List which he started in 1994 and tirelessly keeps going. If you are interested in book arts, it is well worth joining. The members are incredibly knowledgeable and always willing to share. There are occasional philosophical discussions, frequent postings of book arts exhibitions and classes (with equally frequent pleas to posters to put the location in the subject line), and lots of technical information. His site, The Book Arts Web, has links to Professional Organizations, Book Arts Education, Bookbinders and Book Artists, Tutorials & Reference, Suppliers, and much, much more. As if that isn't enough, he also is the publisher and editor of the now annual online magazine, The Bonefolder: e-journal for the book binder and book artist. And now his most recent aid for connectivity—Book Arts Hotspots Worldwide through google maps. Another wonderful resource. Thank you Peter!
