Blooks on CBS Sunday Morning, the good news program


The CBS Sunday Morning news segment about my exhibition Blooks: The Art of Books That Aren't is linked below for you to share or watch. Thank you for all of your letters and photos. If I haven't answered you already, I will. The outstanding response to the exhibition and the support you have given me are so much appreciated. Some of you are writing about exhibit logistics that you missed along the line. Here are some FAQs about the exhibition and catalog:

Location of exhibition: The Grolier Club, 47 East 60th St., New York, between Park and Madison Aves. Open Monday-Saturday, here's a link to their site: http://www.grolierclub.org. There is no charge to visit this exhibition.

Dates of exhibition: The last day of the show is March 12. I will give free weekly tours every Thursday from 1-2 PM. I often come in spontaneously on Saturdays (2-3 PM) for extra free tours, email or ask at the Club, I'll let them know. For additional private tours (fee may apply) contact me at mindelldubansky@gmail.com.

Buy the catalog: Yes, I have written, done the photography for and self-published a full-color catalog of the show. It is and may always be the only book written on the subject of blooks. I encourage you to buy it. The cost is (for US) $51 which includes postage. International buyers should contact me. You can purchase it here,  on the NEW BOOK page and at the Grolier Club through March 12. If you want to pay with a check, send $51 to Mindell Dubansky, 4-D, New York, NY 10128. Include the mailing address of the recipient please. You will see that I've also written a book about an early book cover designer, Alice C. Morse.




Donations: Many people have donated funding towards this project and even contributed wonderful blooks to my collection. You will see them acknowledged in the Donor page of this blog, in the catalog and on the exhibition labels. If you would like to help to expand the collection and support related projects, please contact me at mindelldubansky@gmail.com.

Other:
  • Will the show travel? There are no plans as yet to travel the collection
  • Where do I keep them? Pretty much everywhere at home
Here is the CBS segment on my exhibition, aired yesterday on CBS Sunday Morning.



When I get a chance, I'll post some of the photos you've sent and pictures of the extraordinary objects that you have donated to the collection. 

ALSO
you are invited to this free public lecture about blooks on March 2 at FIT.

  3. I love it! How cool! Clever art, and hiding spots! Something that the Millennial Generation will sadly never understand!

  4. I have a blook that is a piece of furniture, three big blooks, about three foot by three foot "Adventures of Tom Sawyer" looking books that I use as a coffee table at my lake house. I can send a pic if you want! Paul.
