"Stitched" by Nikki Navaille, winner of the 2015 UCF Student Book Arts Competition

Exhibit: UCF Student Book Arts Competition

The UCF Libraries Special Collections & University Archives is pleased to announce the UCF Student Book Arts Competition Exhibit. Each year since 2005, Special Collections & University Archives invites UCF students to submit one of a kind books called artist’s books. Unlike traditional books, artist’s books are handmade to reflect personal artistic visions of their creators ranging from narrative storytelling through but not limited to drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and/or personal text. The UCF Student Book Arts Competition Exhibit is a showcase of all entries created during the 2015 academic calendar year including past winners.

We are pleased to announce our winner is Nikki Navaille for her artist’s book “Stitched”. The winner was selected with the highest scores from our two judges – Brooklyn-based multimedia book artist Miriam Schaer, and UCF Head of Special Collections & University Archives David Benjamin, based on creativity, craftsmanship, content, and design. “Stitched” elegantly narrates the artist’s struggle of sewing clothing and costumes. Using multiple pattern pieces and fabric scraps from major sewing projects in her life as pages in her book, Navaille skillfully crafted these personal materials together while incorporating detailed text sewn with a sewing machine. Nikki Navaille won a purchase award for her artist’s book to be part of the permanent Book Arts & Typography Collection at Special Collections & University Archives. To celebrate the innovative work of all the participants, the UCF Student Book Arts Competition Exhibit will be on display during the month of February 2016 in the exhibition area on the 5th Floor of the John C. Hitt Library.
