Artists’ Book Cornucopia is an annual exhibition held at Abecedarian Gallery in Denver, Colorado each spring. Luise PoultonManaging Curator, Rare Books, Special Collections, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah was the juror for this year’s exhibition.

“For Artists’ Book Cornucopia V, I looked for diversity of format, material and subject matter. I wanted a vision of the enormity and complexity of communication that can happen in books, old and new. Old formats restructured as new forms. Old texts remade and replete with new meanings. New or unusual materials combined with expected materials to push the notion of communication: tactility heightened, strengthening the experience of the message.”
