Rare Books worked with the Book Arts Program to contribute to Mimeo Mimeo 8: Curator’s Choice. Mimeo Mimeo editors asked “librarians, publishers, poets, printers, book dealers, book collectors, and others bibliographically inclined” from around the country “to curate six pages of Mimeo Mimeo with six items from their personal or institutional collections.” Rare Books Managing Curator Luise Poulton joined Marnie Powers-Torrey, David Wolske, Emily Tipps (Book Arts Program faculty);  Prof. Craig Dworkin (Dept. of English, University of Utah); and Becky Thomas (graduate student, Dept. of English, University of Utah) as part of the “Utah posse” of contributors. Each chose one book from the rare book collections.
