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 drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and/or personal text. The UCF Student Book Arts Competition Exhibit is a showcase of all entries submitted for the 2015 competition including past winners. A panel of jurors selects the best entry and the winner receives a purchase award and has their work added to the permanent Book Arts & Typography Collection in Special Collections & University Archives. 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.
