Posted: 3/20/2017 10:01:03 AM
Every two years an exhibit tours Idaho that examines what qualifies as a book. Some of the pieces in this exhibit would look natural on a bookshelf. One of them reimagines books as part of a toolbelt for cowboys. All of the “books” are pieces of art.

“Bookers Dozen” a traveling exhibit from the Idaho Center for the Book to be on display at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library during April.

The exhibit will be displayed in the cases in the library’s Parkside Gallery adjacent to the Seagraves Children’s Library on the lower level, 702 E. Front Ave.

This year's entries were juried by Rachel Lambert, director of the Black Bar Gallery and art instructor for the City of Boise; art historian Lawrence Shapiro; Boise reporter and mosaic artist Anna Webb; and writer Driek Zirinnsky.
