Book Arts in Tonga part 1 / part 2 / part 3 / part 4

Joe is working to get some exhibitions of the show put together, hopefully internationally. I’ll keep you updated with what happens with the show.

Update: The project now has a website with studio photographs of much of the work:

    Fantabulous! Thanks for sharing this.

    Also, thanks for the paste paper write-up — I used it when preparing for a paste paper session with my after-school class.
