Art: BookWorks 12

By Steven Rosen · July 12th, 2011 · CityBeat Recommends

Although the Internet is�challenging the existence of�many forms of print communication, there is one area where books have — and probably always will have — an upper hand. They are superior to e-books as a form of tactile, multi-dimensional art.�Cincinnati's Main Library, at 800 Vine St., Downtown, currently has two exhibits celebrating books as art.�BookWorks 12, the 12th annual exhibit of books designed by local and regional artists, is sponsored by the Cincinnati Book Arts Society and is on display through Aug.

28. And the�annual Keith Kuhn Memorial Artists’ Book Exhibit, also�on display through Aug. 28, will feature a display of artistically designed works from regionally and nationally recognized artists on the second and third floor of the Main Library.�That exhibit is named in honor of former Library Services Director Keith Kuhn, who passed away in 2008 and who was dedicated to collecting�one-of-a-kind artists’ books.�
