Call for Entries: Building By the Book

BUILDING BY THE BOOK: Book Artists Respond to Architecture and Design

As part of Philagrafika 2010: The Graphic Unconscious, the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Center for the Book, recently issued a new architecture-focused competition.

The Athenaeum's curators have chosen ten special architecture-design books from their legacy research collections. Any artist/designer residing in the United States is invited to submit proposals for a book that responds to one of the selected books. The proposed book may be editioned or one-of-a-kind, artist books, book objects, altered books or zines. The proposal must be for newly created work, directly responding to one of the ten highlighted books.

Visit for project details and to view the selected books, chosen from the Atheneum's architecture and design research collections.

Deadline for proposals is September 25, 2009
