Let Me Tell You: Tiny Books, Big Ideas - an exhibition of miniature handmade books - is open to anyone who would like to participate. The final collection of tiny books will be shown at Drop Forge & Tool in Hudson, NY from May 22 to June 25, 2017. The exhibition is co-presented by Drop Forge & Tool and The Creativity Caravan. Opening reception will be May 22 from 6 to 8pm with a reading at 7pm.
Subject: Every one of us is an expert at something and every one of us has something they would like others to know. Now is your chance to share your expertise in a miniature format. Inspired by The Creativity Caravan’s original collection of “How To” books, we encourage participants to submit books on the theme of sharing knowledge.
Possible prompts for content: What is your super power? What do you know? Who taught you what you know? What do you want to offer the world right now? How do you positively impact your family, neighborhood, or the planet? What are the things you love about your community? What would you like others to know about you?
Submission Fee: To encourage local participation, there is no submission fee for participants who live in Hudson, NY. For participants who live further afield, there is a small fee of $5 for each book submitted to cover our administrative and display making costs. If the fee is prohibitive, please let us know. We do not want the fee to prevent anyone from participating!
Sales: If participants would like their tiny book to be for sale at the exhibit, please indicate a price. Participants will receive 50% of the sales price if their work is sold. Please mark your work Not For Sale if you do not want to sell it. All unsold work can be picked up at the end of the exhibit.
