Market to Market by Mary V. Marsh
I saw this book over the summer during a visit by Laura Russell of 23 Sandy Gallery. I was immediately impressed by its dynamic structure: closed, it appears to be an ordinary book. However, when opened, hidden magnets allow the book to spread open so that the two covers touch, forming what’s called a carousel structure. The subject matter, documenting ordinary scenes of commuters from the artist’s travels between Oakland and San Francisco, struck me as potentially appealing to the students at the Stamps School of Art & Design, who will soon leave the academic world to become artists with commutes of their own.
We have two new book displays ready for your browsing pleasure, located on the 2nd floor of the Duderstadt Center in the atrium.
The first one is entitled "Think Small," and includes materials from subjects such as tiny art projects, micro architecture, mini-comics and nanotechnology.
We also have a "Back to School" themed display on our graphic novels shelf.
