This is a fantastic family event! We have attended for many years and delight in it each time. There are so many fascinating things to see, so many different book forms, fun activities, and the artists are great to talk with, each one eager to share their techniques and ideas. My grandchildren have always enjoyed this day.
Oh, yes, and good food, too.... the well-known trucks, MoBowl and Treatbot (gourmet ice cream) will be there.
What a fantastic article about a great artist. I am so happy for you, Jamila!!!
This event is a highlight of my year. I can't wait for the Book Jam. This is a great article about one of my favorite artists and teachers. Congratulations, Jamila.
Great article! I look forward to the Jam every year.
Jamila is an inspiring person and artist! Thanks for this feature...and don't miss the Book Arts Jam
The Book Arts Jam is always fantastic and a wonderful inspiration! You get to talk with the actual artists, examine what they created and how and the lectures are very informative! I am really really looking forward to it! Great work Jamila! Wonderful concepts and beautifully done!
This is such wonderful recognition for you, Jamila. It was such a pleasure to be at your first BABA meeting, and see your face slowly grasping that you'd found your tribe! We are a grand group of folks who love all things book and paper. Looking forward to another year of the BABA JAM.
I enjoyed this article and am looking forward to the Book Arts Jam to see more of this work.
This is a wonderful story about you, Jamila, and your journey into the bookish arts, both as student and teacher. Especially liked reading about the family story; so many stories can be passed along through the bookmaking process, and attention paid. Congratulations on a timely article and I look forward to seeing you at the Book Arts Jam, a hugely fun event!
