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.
