|Paula Baymiller, administrative assistant in the Art Library, holds part of Three Visions, by Rosalie Fanshel, a senior from Sebastopol, California. One of the things Baymiller likes about this book is that it involves several pieces that fit together in a kind of package.|
|The library staff is decorating the library for a birthday party tomorrow, as it decorated for the event held last year. The party starts at 2:00 with an open-book hour, when visitors can pick up and handle most of the books. At 3:00 the books' creators will give a gallery talk, each talking about her own book. A reception, with food, begins at 4:00 in the Seminar Room of the Allen Art Building; at 4:30 three books will be announced as Best of Show.|
|The books are on display now through May 27.|
|Not all the books can be picked up. This untitled work by Anne Slattery, a senior from Maribel, Wisconsin, is made with heavy stone slabs.|
|Julia Rosenberg, a senior from Berkeley, California created her untitled book from wood, fabric, upholstery tacks, acrylic paint, ribbon, wire, beads, scraps of paper, and other materials.|
