This NEA grant supports two experimental book workshops to be held at EMU’s Parsons Center in northern Michigan. The workshop is geared to designers, artists, and writers.

The Open Book workshop will encourage participants to envision experimental book formats. The grant also supports the design and production of a high-end publication, which will itself be an experimental book. This book will include seven critical essays, the workshop projects, as well as work from the 2010 exhibition “Open Book.”
