WANTED: Steve Miller!


Steve Miller is coming to Edmonton!

Artist Steve Miller is a professor and coordinator for the MFA in the Book Arts Program at the University of Alabama.  He spearheads the Paper & Book Intensive Workshops; is the originator of Book Artists and Poets podcasts found on iTunes and Juror of 500 Handmade Books by Lark.

Steve will give two public lectures sponsored by the University of Alberta Libraries, Department of Art and Design, and the School of Library and Information Studies. His first lecture, Generosity of Spirit, will coincide with the opening reception of The Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild (CBBAG) at 5:00 pm 4 October.  A second presentation, Collaboration with Cuban Artists, is scheduled for 5 October  also at 5:00 pm in room 2-09 Rutherford Library South at The University of Alberta.

By the way, if you would like to read about the fun, friendships and shenanigans that took place at Paper & Book Intensive Workshop 2010 in Maine this year read  my postings dated 4 & 5 August and 8 September.

What do you think about my two-minute drawing of Steve?  I think he looks at least 10 -- NO!  20 years younger (giggle).  Submit your drawings of Steve and I will share your illustration with my readers!  This will be fun!  I'm sure Steve will enjoy it, too!


  1. WOO-HOO!!!! LUCKY YOU! say hi from me, please!

  2. How exciting, Margaret—love your site!

  3. Thanks Chiori! It's sooooo good to hear from you! Steve's lectures were amazing! On the second night, he shared his memories of Cuba and the artisans he befriended. Emily and Anna accompanied him. The books they made were outstanding! Steve donated one to the University of Alberta's Bruce Peele Library for their special collection. I want to go to Cuba and work with these artists!
