What makes a book a book? Is it a smell? A review on Amazon? Is it a download? Bestseller lists aren’t the place to find small production books, but this genre of literature was the focus of the recent exhibit Welcome: Page by Page at The Center for Photography at Woodstock.
On display during this springtime exhibit were books printed in small batches, an effort by the artist to bind and preserve their work of words or photos. Viewers were encouraged to pick up and flip through the displays, and topics included poetry, photography, dreams and travel.
The non-profit Center for Photography At Woodstock was founded in 1977 and has a workspace, library, darkroom, regular workships and classes. They also offer fellowships to regional artists who work with photography or related media.
