Above: Visitors to the 15th annual open house of the Nancy Spirtas Kranzberg Studio for the Illustrated Book review handmade books on display at the May 1 event in Walker Hall. The studio — where students learn traditional techniques for bookbinding, letterpress and alternative print processes, and publication design — is a collaboration between the Sam Fox School's College of Art and University Libraries. During the open house, students display their work from the academic year and compete for the Nancy Award, which recognizes outstanding student achievement in book design. The 2012 winner is art graduate student Emily Squires, who will receive a master of fine arts degree at Commencement May 18. Below: a book created by a WUSTL student is displayed at the open house.
