Octavofest: Celebrating the Book and Paper Arts
Featured Octavofest Guest at the Morgan Conservatory this Summer
The Morgan Conservatory’s Summer Workshops are open for registration, and include several workshops focusing on book binding and book arts techniques.
The Morgan is excited to have Jim Canary, featured speaker with Octavofest 2018, teaching there this summer. The Morgan Conservatory seeks out nationally recognized artists and educators to teach workshops in book binding and book arts, hand papermaking, and printmaking.

Jim Canary is the Conservator at the University of Indiana, Bloomington’s Lilly Library. The Lilly Library is the principal rare books, manuscripts, and special collections repository of Indiana University, serving as a resource for scholars throughout the world as well as a center of cultural enrichment. He has expertise on Asian book history, conservation, and preservation, and has worked with ancient Tibetan manuscripts. Canary will also participate in Octavofest events in Cleveland in late October.
