Basler Papiermühle

Book and Form - The Art and Craft of Hand Bookbinding. «Five times Five» 25th Anniversary Exhibition

Today: 1.00 PM - 5.00 PM

19 October 2019 - 30 October 2019

The group BOOK AND FORM m experiments in playful ways within the disciplines of bookbinding and bookarts. They forge objects that come from combining technical expertise with a diversity of materials and an eye for line and design. There is a respect for tradition and yet a desire to seek new ways, new applications and the unexpected result. The works are resolutely contemporary and combine craft, design and art in a dynamic symbiosis.

Kylin Lee Achermann, Philip Gremaud, Suzanne Schmollgruber, Carine Serex Chew, Jan Peter Zimmerlich
