Formation is a theme that can be taken in many different directions: biology (the formation of plants), craftsmanship (forming pieces, how we make things), forming ideas, geographies, personal narratives and histories, and how our histories help to inform the work we make as artists. The possibilities really seem endless. Guild of Book Workers members have examined the concept from many angles in this exhibition.

The Guild of Book Workers was founded in 1906 to "establish and maintain a feeling of kinship and mutual interest among workers in the several hand book crafts." The mission of the organization includes broadening public awareness of the hand book arts, and Formation is one means to meet that goal.

The Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking is the only location the exhibition will be shown in the Southeastern United States.
