      To celebrate the launch of the new Artists Board Book series, published by Graham grantee Soberscove Press, the Graham Foundation Bookshop will be hosting a special event for children inside Judy Ledgerwoods immersive installation, Chromatic Patterns for the Graham Foundation. This innovative series consists of 5 individually-authored books that playfully combine the conventions of the artists book with those of childrens board books. On March 15, 2014, children of all ages are invited to create their own board books, finding inspiration in the pattern, color, and ornament of Ledgerwoods vibrant wall painting and the Foundations historic Prairie-style Madlener House. Co-sponsored by Poetry magazine, the launch event will also include an artist-lead activity by Jessie Mott, author of Animals Dreaming.

      Soberscove's Artists' Board Books are sold individually, as well as in a Limited Edition Boxed Set. Titles include:

      Animals Dreaming by Jessie Mott

      Dunes at Noons by Brad Tucker

      Food Face by Carrie Solomon

      Mountain Ocean Sun by David Brainard

      A Sunny Day for Flowers by Zehra Khan and Tim Winn


      Soberscove Press seeks to make available art-related materials that fill a gap in the literature, are difficult to access, or are created in collaboration with artists. Our publications are intended for a general readership that thrives on intellectual curiosity and visual pleasure.

      Jessie Mott is a Chicago-based visual artist and writer whose work employs a menagerie of human, animal, and celestial forms. Motts work has been included in many solo and group exhibitions. Her collaborative animations with the artist and writer Steve Reinke have been screened nationally and internationally, and will be included in the upcoming 2014 Whitney Biennial. Mott received a MFA from Northwestern University and a BFA from New York University.

      Founded in Chicago by Harriet Monroe in 1912, POETRY is the oldest monthly devoted to verse in the English-speaking world. Harriet Monroes Open Door policy, set forth in volume 1 of the magazine, remains the most succinct statement of POETRYs mission: to print the best poetry written today, in whatever style, genre, or approach. The magazine established its reputation early by publishing the rst important poems of T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens, H.D., William Carlos Williams, Carl Sandburg, and other now-classic authors. In succeeding decades it has presentedoften for the rst timeworks by virtually every significant poet of the twentieth century.
