By A Thread, Land Marks Press, 2006
An exhibit featuring books and broadsides printed over the last 25 years by artist Lynne Avadenka at her one-woman press, Land Marks Press. Her work demonstrates great skill in merging the visual and textual in small-press runs using fine paper, binding, and printing. The books are on display in the Frankel Center for Judaic Studies Seminar Room (room 2000, Thayer Building) from March 21 through May 17, 2013; all are on loan from the collections of the Special Collections Library, University of Michigan.
This exhibit is in conjunction with an exhibit of Avadenka's artwork at the Institute for the Humanities gallery (room 1010, Thayer Building). Avadenka is the 2013 Jill S. Harris Visiting Artist at the Institute for the Humanities. An established book artist from Detroit who has had her own one-woman press for 25 years, she is a recent recipient of the Kresge Award and an inaugural fellow at the American Academy in Jerusalem.
