Bound: books make better friends
The Bookmobile project was inspired by an exhibition entitled
Bound... books make better friends which took place at Concordia
University's VAV Gallery in 1998. The following images were taken
from that show and represent some of the book works which were exhibited.
The quality and diversity of the book works submitted will continue
and expand with the Bookmobile project.
