In 2017, Alberta Printmakers and Loft 112 initiated Print(ed) Word to explore book inspired relationships: art from text, artist with writer, art book and reader.
The result was a collaboration between a selection of 12 Alberta printmakers and 12 writers, each paired to create a collaborative artist book inspired from an existing text. The creation of this project was made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
The permanent exhibit, which is located on Level Four in the west vestibule of the TD Great Reading Room, and documentary are made possible through the generous support of the J K L MacLachlan Family Foundation. The Catalogue, which includes the full text of each piece of writing can be purchased online.
