Steve Clay, Publisher Granary Books, New York and Barb Tetenbaum, Book Artist and Book Arts Chair, Oregon College of Art and Craft
Steven Clay, publisher of Granary Books, is an editor, curator, and archivist specializing in the American art and literature of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. He is the author, with Rodney Phillips, of A Secret Location on the Lower East Side: Adventures in Writing 1960-1980 (1998) and editor, with Jerome Rothenberg, of A Book of the Book: Some Works & Projections about the Book & Writing. He lives in New York City. For nearly thirty years, Granary Books has brought together writers, artists, and bookmakers to investigate verbal/visual relations in the time-honored spirit of independent publishing. Granary's mission—to produce, promote, document, and theorize new works exploring the intersection of word, image, and page—has earned the Press a reputation as one of the most unique and significant small publishers operating today.
Barbara Tetenbaum has been printing artist books under the imprint, Triangular Press, since 1979. She is currently Professor and Department Head of Book Arts at Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, Oregon. She is the recipient of two Fulbright awards to teach in Leipzig, Germany and in Usti nad Labem in the Czech Republic and has received other awards of support for her artwork and research.
