Book Art Exhibition – An exhibition of ‘book art’ by Burnley College Art, Design and Fashion students at various locations around the town centre. Using a variety of books the students creatively construct unusual artwork. Sometimes the recycled book is selected for their formal elements, other times for their content. Even as our lives become ever more digitalized, the beauty of the printed page continues to hold sway. With this emotion as a starting point the students give new life to the discarded books and to illustrate the multimedia value of this alternative usage, the students have transformed traditional texts into works of genuine art. The resulting book art is a visually stunning reinvention of its pre-existing form.
