LIBROS is New Mexico’s Book Arts Guild offering a variety of inspiration for both traditional and experimental artist’s books. We hold regular meetings on the 1st Saturday of the month, as well as annual and special exhibits.
We welcome new members and guests – please see our Calendar page a full list of upcoming meetings.
Sabra Moore will conduct a 3-hour workshop exploring the idea of making text and image based artists’ books. Moore will first make a presentation of various artist’s books, some multi-edition photocopier books and others unique hand-made books in various materials and formats. She will show both her own artists’ books and a selection from other artists. Then she will lead a book-making workshop where participants can create a single book using a selection of materials that Moore will provide- paper, metal, wood, stamps, stencils, colored pencils, watercolors, paste, collage materials. Each participant will select a packet from a basket of word packets that Moore will bring. Each packet contains three words and participants will be asked to respond to at least one of those words to create a small book. Moore will demonstrate two or three simple book forms, such as an accordion folded book or a sewn book, and participants will create a book based on those ideas.
Sabra Moore is a Texas-born artist and writer living in Abiquiu, New Mexico. Her work is based on re-interpreting family, social, & natural history through the form of artist’s books, sewn & painted “constructed“ sculptures & wall works, and installations. She has exhibited extensively in New York City, Canada, Brazil and New Mexico. Her artist’s books are in many museum collections, including the Brooklyn Museum and Museum of Modern Art (NYC).

Don’t leave home without your bookbinding kit! Remember that many of our meetings are “hands-on” and the best way to learn new techniques is to try them yourself!
