Bound for Beauty

While paper may be slowly becoming obsolete in the publishing industry, it’s still used in the arts. A fact that the Gualala Arts Center’s Paper Legends show makes clear. During the exhibit, giant, decorated paper-bag kimonos will hang from the rafters, and artistic books, from the simple to elaborate, will be on display. See paper bag books, accordion books, star books, letter press books, a triangular prism book, folded sculpture books, flag books, sewn books, and miniature books. Paper Legends will run January 13–February 5 at the arts center in Gualala. Admission is free. Find out more at
