On view February 7–March 22, 2020, the MN Book Artist Award Exhibition will allow people to see an original edition of "My Mighty Journey: A Waterfall's Story" up close. At 4½ feet wide, this is one mighty handmade book! Written by acclaimed author John Coy, "My Mighty Journey" shines with the visual expertise of renowned letterpress printer Gaylord Schanilec, who led a team of 11 artists through a five-year process of composition, printing, and binding.

Selected artwork by members of the production team will give viewers a sense of the breadth of talent and knowledge embodied by this winning team.

An artist talk will begin at 7pm in the Target Performance Hall at Open Book.
