April 2013 Archives

Check out our RE:BOOK 2013 winners!

Congratulations and thanks to all for making RE:BOOK 2013, our second annual repurposed paper art contest, a raging success. We received 19 innovative and beautiful entries this year, spanning diverse paper media and artistic themes.

Incoming Dean of the Library Kevin Mulroy joined the RE:BOOK celebration in the Founders Room on Tuesday afternoon, citing the contest as one of a kind and an innovative contribution to the Claremont Colleges' history of excellence in the book arts.

In a surprise turn, three Pomona College students swept the contest this year:

1st Place - Leo Estrada '16 with "By Love Possessed"


2nd Place - Emily Proulx '16 with 'Hanging Chads'

3rd Place - Ivette Guadarrama '13 with 'Book Style'

You can see more RE:BOOKS on display in a case near the Services Desk on the Library's 2nd floor. Thanks again to all those who submitted projects this year, and stay tuned for more 2013 event/entry photos as well as RE:BOOK 2014 next Spring.

Don't Forget! RE:BOOK Contest Entries Due by 5PM on Fri., Apr. 12

Most of us have old paperbacks, printouts, magazines, textbooks, or notebooks lying around that are falling apart or have generally seen better days. Instead of recycling, how about a little creative repurposing that could net you (modest) fame and (a small amount of) fortune?

In honor of National Library Week April 14-20, the Claremont Colleges Library is inviting entries for RE:BOOK 2013, our second annual repurposed paper art contest. You can be as innovative as you like with your submission, but *please note that you absolutely should not repurpose extant Library or otherwise viable books!* The idea of this contest is to give worn or cast-off pages new life.

This year will feature three Amazon gift card prizes for the best re:books: 1st - $250 | 2nd - $100 | 3rd - $50

Throw your hat in the ring at libguides.libraries.claremont.edu/rebook - RE:BOOKs must be submitted to the Library's Services Desk by 5 pm on Friday April 12. We'll have a RE:BOOK celebration, display, and prize giveaway on Tuesday April 16th at 3:30 in the Honnold/Mudd Founders Room.

To give you an idea of how all-around awesome this contest is, check out photos from RE:BOOK 2012, including our 1st prize winner 'Faire Day' by Scripps' Alexandra Pineus.
