My starbook "A Sense of Place" has been acquired for the Rare Books collection at Yale University. I am so honoured by this acquisition, as "A Sense of Place" was the first full starbook I created, and the book that gave birth to the name for my blog and website.
I am also delighted to advise that the Thomas Fisher Rare Books Library at the University of Toronto has acquired two of my pieces. "River Worn" is a concertina that extends to a full 6 feet when fully opened, and is based on the lyrics of the old camp song "Peace I Ask of Thee, O River". My "Chinese Zodiac" starbook featured in the Alberta Craft Council exhibition "Pulp Paper Pages" and travelled to the Hanji Paper Festival in Wonju, South Korea in September 2013. You can see my article about this trip in the Fall 2014 issue of Bound & Lettered Magazine.
