College Bound

Books sometimes feel like the forgotten middle child. Squished between the renown of the authors and eye-catching covers, books in-and-of themselves are too often overlooked as pieces of art. But A Buncha Book Authors is once again shining a light on this underrated art form with their 14th annual members show “Strat-o-graphic: Charting, layering and revealing the artist’s book.”

Juried by Scottsdale Public Art director Donna Isaac, “Strat-o-graphic” will involve Arizona State University undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, independent artists, and guest students from the University of Illinois showing off their books and the potential that books have to be art, starting Monday, October 27, at the Harry Wood Gallery, 900 South Forest Mall, at ASU’s School of Art Building in Tempe. Gallery hours on Tuesday, October 28, are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and admission is free. For more information, call 913-710-1934 or visit

Mondays-Thursdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Tue., Oct. 28, 6-8 p.m.; Fridays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Starts: Oct. 27. Continues through Nov. 7, 2014
