3-Minute Egg: Book Arts Fest

3-Minute Egg Review - Book Arts fest
The 3-Minute Egg Assignment I watched was about the festival held at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, where a bunch of photographers, writer, poets, bookmakers, illustrators and such all gathered to display and talk about their work. I was most interested by the story of an artist who made a book based on 41 pairs of shoes that she's kept in her closet as artistic reference. She drew them all and then wrote a memory associated with each shoe next to them, and then made a book out of it called "Oh my god, Shoes!". I liked the reminder that books and art can be mixed together, and that they don't have to be formal or serious, they can just be fun.
