If you’re looking for more bang for your buck at the upcoming Virginia Arts of the Book Center’s Raucous Auction, we suggest bidding on the VABC’s 2013 collaborative project, “Book Maker’s Dozen.” This collection of 15 miniature books was created by 27 local artists, employing a variety of printing styles including letterpress, lithography, etching, and giclée. The books also showcase several binding styles, such as Coptic, stiff board, accordion, and non-adhesive. And believe us, “miniature” is no exaggeration! At only 2″ wide and 3″ long, these books evidence the artists’ clear precision and attention to detail. The books are packaged in a handsome collector’s boxed set.
While there are 20 to 50 copies of each book for individual sale, only 15 sets of this complete collection have been made… and this is the last one available! Bid now to take home this rare collection by visiting the VABC’s online auction site to place your bid, and make sure to attend the Raucous Auction on November 18 to secure it!
