Janet Fryberger has a life long passion for books and book arts, having owned Art in Form Bookstore, and curated book art exhibits. Janet reads, makes, collects and eats books. She produces Cook the Books! The Seattle Edible Book Festival and has been a member of the Seattle Center for Book Arts board of directors since 2008. A devotee of punk-shui interior design and installation art, her personal library of 1500 volumes is arranged by color and she lives in a Borgesian world of circularity.
Lark Preya owns Dirigible Works, creating artists’ books and ephemera. She has an MFA in Bookarts from the University of Alabama, concentrating in printing, binding, papermaking and the history of the book. She is a member of ILSSA and on the board of the Seattle Center for Book Arts.
Rachel is a graphic designer, paper freak and book artist. She has a BFA in graphic design (because she loves grids and typography) with a minor in book arts (because she loves letterpress, printmaking and bookbinding) from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Rachel is a native Seattelite who has recently returned to the emerald city after wandering far and wide in search of enlightenment and ephemera. She produces all manner of handmade treasures in her subterranean studio in West Seattle.
