119d.  The 6th Biennial Codex Book Fair and Symposium was held February 5-8 in Richmond, California. The Codex Foundation was conceived in 2005 by Peter Rutledge Koch, fine press printer, and Susan Filter, paper conservator, to create an environment for promoting the book as a work of art. This is accomplished by bringing together the Best of the Best book artists and fine press printers from around the world to share their work, explore new and old concepts, and to start an on-going conversation about the fate and future of the book as an essential art form.

Sue Anderson and Gwen Harrison have worked collaboratively to create limited edition artists’ books for over ten years.
