Religious Reflections

Religious Reflections: Selections from the A.M. Todd Rare Book Room Collection features Giclée prints from The Saint John’s Bible along with other religious selections. Exhibit in the A.M. Todd Rare Book Room at Kalamazoo College, January 7 – March 14, 2013, and will be part of Art Hop, a program of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, on the first Friday in February and March.

The exhibit poster and postcard I designed features the artwork Birth of Christ, Donald Jackson, Copyright 2002, The Saint John’s Bible, Saint John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota USA. Used by permission. All rights reserved. www.SaintJohnsBible.org

Interestingly, I could not submit Birth of Christ artwork for use for the Art Hop brochure. The Saint John’s Bible has very strict use guidelines, so another religious selection is featured in that brochure. I also needed approval from The Saint John’s Bible before sending the artwork to print.

The following guideline made me pause when I first read it: “No modification of the image is allowed including writing, logos or printing of any sort placed on, around, or under the image, including decorative borders.”  I wondered how strict an interpretation would be taken, but the designs (after a small revision) were approved so all went well!

The Saint John’s Bible’s calligraphy and illuminations are amazing, and I encourage everyone to learn more.

William Morris & Kelmscott

William Morris & Kelmscott features the work of 19th century British artist, writer, and textile designer William Morris who founded the Kelmscott Press. Exhibit in the A.M. Todd Rare Book Room at Kalamazoo College, September 10 – November 15, 2012, and will be part of the Art Hop, a program of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, October and November. Read brochure for October Art Hop.

This is the first Rare Book Room poster that I’ve designed with the new branding. LOVE the fonts!

As usual, I photographed the artwork I wanted to showcase for the exhibit. I fell in love with this tapestry, which is probably about 4′ height.
