Congratulations and thanks to all for making RE:BOOK 2015, the Claremont Colleges Library's repurposed paper art contest, a success! Now in its fourth year, we had the opportunity to once again see how students creatively breathe new life into worn out books, magazines, and other types of paper. The judges had a very hard time determining the winners. This is also the first time we have had a People's Prize category, allowing everyone that came to the celebration and awards ceremony to vote for their favorite RE:BOOK.

The RE:BOOKS will be on display until May 1 in the north entrance of the library.

The winners of RE:BOOK 2015 are:

Aesthetics and People's Choice
Chloe Bazlen, Scripps College
A Tale of Tea

Leo Estrada, Pomona College

Theme of Sustainability
Jordan Riddle, Claremont Graduate University
The Art of Dissection: Comparative Acatomy

Technical skill
Jennifer Rogers, Harvey Mudd College

The judges also advocated to add an additional category to honor a RE:BOOK that was a strong contender in many categories:
