Catalog for the "Travel Books" exhibition held at the Book Arts Gallery from June 25 - September 5, 1987. CBA has two copies.

"In this show we present work by 18 contemporary artists whose travels take us through Egypt, Paris, a cave, and a dressmaker's pattern. Whether the voyage is through a strange land or through inner space, each artist brings a vision and history the subject. Some of the work is entirely visual, and some employ text. In most cases the structure of the book is of major interest, whether of ceramic or terrycloth, and in traditional sewn form or the use of accordion folds. The latter is much more in evidence, as it provides the artists with a way of producing sequential images and having them all visible simultaneously." - front matter
