Donna Seager has distinguished hersel f both in the bay area and around the country for her commitment to the boo k arts.  Donna spoke about the book as a medium for art at the Aqua Fair in Miami in December and has an area of her gallery with ongoing displays of works related to the book. While this material has long been valued by muse ums and libraries with special collections\, there is a growing interest on the part of collectors who have begun to understand that these objects off er them an experience of art unlike any other.  As always\, the Seager Gall ery will present as broad an interpretation of the medium as possible. From fine letterpress editions with exquisite printmaking\, binding and papers by such noted artists as Carolee Campbell from Ninja Press and Inge Bruggem an to sculptures and wall pieces created from parts of books by artists suc h as Jody Alexander\, Lisa Kokin and Emily Payne this exhibition is an expl oration of the fertile ground presented by this exciting medium.
