August 2019 Bulletin

Katie Baldwin has been selected as the inaugural Book-Artist-in-Residence at Common Press

Common Press and Philadelphia Center for the Book are pleased to announce the selection of our inaugural Book Artist in Residence at Fisher Fine Arts Library, University of Pennsylvania.

We received many thoughtful proposals from artists both local and out-of-state. The jury selected Katie Amelia Baldwin, a printmaker and book artist in Huntsville, AL, with ties to Philadelphia, for both the strength of her work and the ties between her creative practice and the landscape architecture collection at Fisher Fine Arts Library.
