Contains 93 plays by 18 playwrights, together with detailed information on related productions, theaters, production companies, and more. Continuously updated, when complete the North American Indian Drama will contain the full text of 250 plays written from the early 1900s to the present by more than 50 playwrights. Many of the works are rare, hard-to-find, or out of print. Nearly a quarter of the collection will consist of previously unpublished plays. Each play is extensively indexed, allowing both keyword and multi-fielded searching. The plays are accompanied by reference materials, significant ancillary information, a rich performance database, and images rsulting in a collection that illustrates the many purposes that theater has served. Also includes the "Native Playwrights' Newsletter" (1993-96) a unique resource containing original essays, articles, photographs, interviews, reviews, and production information related to the plays.
An artist’s book is a work of art that takes the form of a book. But what does that mean? And what counts as a book, anyway? Is it a bunch of pages that have been bound together, or is there more to it than that?
These are the kinds of questions that artists’ books try to answer. They play with both the form and the function of books as objects, encouraging onlookers to question traditional conceptualizations of “books.” They are usually handmade, often unique, and all different from one another. Because most artist’s books are hand-made and only crafted in small, limited runs, they offer artists a special opportunity to create books that are intensely personal.
All of the books featured in this exhibit are part of Miami University’s Walter Havighurst Special Collections. The materials on display reflect a concentrated effort to build a diverse, provocative collection that will challenge students to reconsider their notion of “books” while also paying tribute to the creativity and innovation of book artists across the globe.
