The Friends of Art Bookshop and the Indiana University Fine Arts Library is sponsoring an event with Vamp & Tramp Booksellers on Friday, November 9, 2012. Vicky and Bill Stewart, owners of Vamp & Tramp Books, will present a lecture titled “Artists’ Books: When the Goblet Becomes the Wine” from 4:30–6 pm in room 102 of Indiana University’s Fine Arts Building. Based in Birmingham, AL, the Stewarts travel the United States with their vast and unique collection of handmade Artists’ Books, selling to collectors, retail shops and universities. Attend the lecture to hear the stories behind the books, and to learn more of their experiences as dealers of this rare but enticing art form.
