Grateful acknowledgement is made to Jill Magi for the use of her art for the Handmade/Homemade site (above)—“Tongues”, 2007.

The permanent new special collection of Homemade/Handmade books has been installed at Pace University, Westchester, in Mortola Library. The books were donated by past contributors/exhibitors of the Handmade/Homemade annual exhibit and are now housed on the second floor of Mortola in a beautiful new case at the top of the stairs.

Every March, Pace hosts a month-long exhibition of 10-15 new writers and artists ( Each year, after the annual exhibit of homemade/handmade books at the Mortola library, a few more books from the exhibition will be added to the special collection.

The library creates a record for each of the books in our catalog. The “location” in the catalog indicates Homemade/Handmade collection. There is link for the Handmade/Homemade Collection under “Special Collection” on our library home page.

Thanks to Harriet Huang, Reference Librarian/Collection Development Librarian, for all her work on bringing the special collection to fruition.
