  9. Dante holding up Pretzel by Claes Oldenburg; Simon browsing the Graham Foundation bookshop

    We just got back from a three-week trip to the USA, visiting Chicago and Minneapolis. While we were there, we had the chance to visit some fantastic studios, libraries, and bookshops.

    In Chicago, we met with Iker Gil of MAS Context, who helped us find our way to the new Graham Foundation bookshop. The excellent new bookshop, specialising in publications on architecture, urbanism, art and related subjects, opened late last year and was designed by Chicago architect Ania Jaworska.

    Also in Chicago, our friend Alex Valentine, a printmaker, publisher (No Coast Editions) and educator at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, showed us around the school’s print and artists’ books studio.

    While we were in Minneapolis, we visited the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and spoke with Jeff Rathermel, the Executive Director and a book artist himself. Jeff was recently in the UK teaching at the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE Bristol and visiting book arts facilities across the country. It was great to be at MCBA again to speak with Jeff about running an open-access centre for book arts and to hear about new developments at MCBA.

    We also had the chance to visit our friend Dante Carlos at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Dante is Head Designer at the Walker and we’ve had the pleasure of working with him on a number of occasions in the past. He showed us some of his recent projects and walked us through the amazing artists’ books and multiples archive and library at the Walker.
