Black History Artists Books at NY's Printed Matter, Quilt on Display

Printed Matter, the famed artists books non-profit bookstore in New York City, has a table featuring African American book artists for Black History month. Curated by Theresa Chromati, the display features more than a dozen books, including ones by Shellyne Rodriguez, Jayson Musson and Ellen Gallagher.

See the quilted wallhanging in the photo? It's created by California quilter Denise M. Campbell as a gift to me when my book, Black Threads, was published.

If you're in NYC this month, do stop by Printed Matter!  Enjoy!

These quilts are really nice! It would add a nice touch if maybe they had some black history quotes on the back of them or somewhere on the quilt just to top it off! I saw some really inspiring black history slogans I can share with you here if its okay: Black History Month Slogans
