2014 Ephemera Exchange!

We warmly invite you to participate with us for the 2014 Ephemera Exchange!

Ephemera: is any transitory written or printed matter not meant to be retained or preserved.

To play, print 30 pieces no larger than 5″ x 7″ or folding down to that size. Letterpress printed pieces are encouraged, but the BAL will accept any entry! In the past we have had potato prints, laser printed quotes, creative cuttings from old pages of books, poems picked out of strips of phone books, a set of 30 individual collages, folded maps, even laser printed illustrations. Any thing you can print, you can send!!

Once the Book Arts League receives all entries for 2014, the sets will be collated. A BAL volunteer will then design a wrapper or package to contain the collection and you will be mailed back a complete set! Inside your package you will receive one piece from every person who participated and one of your own pieces. Inside will be a list of the names of all the artists who participated. We have had participants from all across the US!!

Any extra collections will be sold to benefit the Book Arts League. In fact! Collections from previous years are available for sale at any Book Arts League open house.

Come and play!!

Please include $6 to cover postage and send your submission to:

Book Arts League  c/o Brenda Gallagher
7963 Neva Road
Longmont CO 80503

Entries for the 2014 Exchange will be collected starting now and through the end of December. The collated and packaged Exchange will be returned to you in March of 2015.
