"White Road, Strada Bianca, White Road" is by Gwen Diehn, of Swannanoa. The book was created using monotypes and relief prints, with the text incised into an absorbant ground, and watercolors. The cover is encrusted with clay.

The Book Arts Collective of WNC (BPAC) has a collection of work by its members on display this month at the county library. The BPAC is a community of book arts and print makers. Artists' books are often defined as works that use the form of a book, including scrolls, pop-ups or loose items in a box.

Some are in a more sculptured form or may be made from natural materials, such as clay, mica or metal.
