Long live print! Challenging conventional notions about books for two decades now, The Bay Area Book Artists are holding their 15th annual Book Arts Jam, a fair featuring hands-on activities; a gallery of modern book arts; artists' talks and exhibitions; and even a continuous letterpress printing demonstration on Sunday, Oct. 16, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Palo Alto Elks Lodge (4249 El Camino Real). A diverse array of book art (manipulated books, 'zines, handmade paper, fine-art prints, sculptures and more) will be displayed. Speakers include Kristen St. John, discussing the conservation of artist books at Stanford University; Don Drake and Robert Perry presenting books and poetry; a panel of Bay Area Book Artists members exploring the topic of "play"; and Karen Rush, who will discuss "dreaming in book form." Local book artists among the more than 30 who are presenting work include Jamila Rufaro, Virginia Phelps and Anitta Toivio. Go to Book Arts Jam.
