Description

Join ICA as we celebrate Octavofest with an open house and display of American decorative book bindings. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, artists created elaborate and ornate trade bindings for American publishers. ICA will display approximately 50 of these beautiful books selected from a local private collection. Our conservation labs will be open, so visitors may ask questions of our conservators that evening. Entrance to the ICA is in the rear of building, off Church Street.
