Fore-Edge Painting Lecture and Workshops
April 8-10, 2005

The Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries are pleased to
sponsor, The Curious Art of Fore-Edge Painting, presented by Martin
Frost at the Milton S. Eisenhower Library in Baltimore, Maryland.

Designed to appeal to both painters and book workers (conservators,
binders, book artists and crafts people) of all levels, the program
will include an illustrated lecture describing the genesis and
progress of this little known art form and will feature painted
books from the artist's own collection.  The one-day, hands-on
workshop will teach the techniques of English water coloring onto

Martin Frost teaches fore-edge painting in England and has taught
the art in Northern California.  He has painted over 3,000
book-edges and his work can be found in many institutions, national
and private collections worldwide.
