Amazing pop-up art book-Waldo exhibit-one day

A limited edition art book is on exhibit Monday, Nov. 14, noon - 4:30 p.m. in Special Collections and Rare Book room, Waldo Library. As a very large and fragile piece at 64 inches it is not exhibited often - one of ten in the world. It is a tribute to maritime folklore and tradition developed over centuries of nautical exploration laid out in the form of an eight-point compass rose. It was designed and constructed by Kevin Steele for his Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition at the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts at Indiana University, in 2012.
