Or, UI Center for the Book Open House:

Open House means you get to look at and touch work being produced by Center students.  That means handmade books of many shapes, sizes, functions.  Also, letterpressed text and imagery, in books or broadsides or posters (like the above dinosaurs in track suits).  Also, handmade paper of flax, kozo, cotton and abaca to name a few.  There are also unexpected performative dimensions to some artwork.  And, demos!

How does this fit into bike shop news?  Most directly, I (Cody) recently began the certificate program at the Center and spend my days madly dashing between bikes and books.  Less directly, there is a deep rooted connection between the authentic experiences of riding a bike and reading a book, between the technologies of self-propulsion and analog information dissemination.
