International Book Art Fair and Symposium
February 4 -7, 2024
Berkeley + Oakland, CA
I will be giving a lecture about my current project centered on the diagram woodcutter of Kepler's Astronomia Nova (1609) on Wednesday, February 6 at the Symposium:
Nested / Nesting Authors
When does the woodcutter of the diagrams of orbiting planets in Kepler’s Astronomia Nova (1609) become another author of Astronomia Nova? When does a printer or even a printing press become another author of Laurence Sterne’s Tristram Shandy? In this talk, Abra will discuss the notion of nested authors and how laborers, craft, materials, text and representation converge or diverge for unintended and unexpected readings on the printed page.
I will also be exhibiting my artist books, publications, and printed matter at the Book Fair!
Come and visit me at Table 77.
It would be amazing to see you there!
