Join us in welcoming interns Adam Bryant and Paige Wilkinson to our conservation lab in the SHSI Research Center in Iowa City. Adam is a recent graduate from the University of Iowa Center for the Book program, and Paige is a graduate student in Iowa's School of Library and Information Science.

They will join conservator Jane Meggers, volunteer Atsuko Horiuichi and staff for workshops on how to identify common problems and treatment plans to preserve heavily used and rare items in our Library and Archives. So far, 37 items have been treated and preserved for future Iowans and researchers.

Thank you Jane, Paige, Adam, and Atsuko for your tremendous work in the conservation lab!

Eventful Universe is the Magic of the God/Allah/Infinite- Mind Blowing Facts about the Universe:

The thesis understudying the Universe & Cosmology easy way to in English, codes of law my theories with strong power of philosophy of faculty of science and finally fulfillments find out the Universe Creations & Finality able to see our Creator!

Theory: “Own Mind & Location is the Present and Past for All” In these way- Philosophers finally found- Eventful Universe is the Magic of the God/Allah/Infinite- Mind Blowing Facts about the Universe. Nature’s plan in everything is the Play of Imagination. 1st case was the birth of the Universe not the Big Bang, Birth of the Universe 2nd case was the Big Bang and 3rd case was the evolution. Observatory Scientists are seeking the Big Bang nearly 14 billion years past from us yet! With my theory and philosophy- I was looking at the Big Bang at this place. Again found- the Magic of philosophy- Same moment or event- there are two cases of the Universe. Just at this moment or event everything has created again the same event or very moment nothing created in the Universe. We are looking at the Big Universe again; it is infinitesimal. On the Rule of Science- Looking at the Universe is 14 billion years past from us, again on rule of my theory with philosophy- I am looking our Universe is in my Brain’s molecules. Age of the Universe is nearly 14 billion years yet! On rule my theory with philosophy I find the age of the Universe is yours life-time and life-less position is in the Dark Energy. We and our eventful Universe is copy such like CD and Digital Universe, Real copy is in power of faculty or in imagination power of the God/Allah/Infinite. Again find out- We everybody is the Universe & Location of Our Home planet is the center point in the Universe because- We are here. Also our Sun is centered from the Sun location. You are center point from your location & I’m center point from my location yet my very Brain is Centre of the Universe. Also your brain is Centre yet when you fulfillment is understood following URLs thesis- A New World & Universe to Explore Alone. Then you can tell that- My very Brain is the Centre & Only way of Portal to the Universe. At: https://lnkd.in/fUqC_ce

The thesis Reward for the Mankind & It for Scientific Global:


A New World & Universe to Explore Alone:

You are aware that in the research activities of space science and creation mystery there is no need for an academic or university higher degree. In this regard in the past history the names of philosophers are recorded who have contributed something new for mankind of the world but they did not attain academic education of their own. Yet! Alfred Nobel says that- Present time needs Higher Education for Nobel Prize in Physics.


A New Universe to Explore Alone:

See into following below in the link page: Sketch of the Universe and History of famous scientists Galileo, Einstein, Hawking, Darwin, Hubble & James Peebles- in PDF URLs version: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/new-universe-explore-alone-shahidur-rahman-sikder/?published=t
In order of merit found realism- Who is the right one for World frontier & Higher Degrees of World fore-knowledge of Philosophy of faculty of Sciences, Astronomy, Astrophysics & Cosmology with Infinite and Infinitesimal???????


A New World to Explore Alone:

Albert Einstein's comment was right, “Science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind”. In my research result-now I can take the resolution that- “Science with religion is natural and religion with science is vision”. See importance- Religious are a Religion a Nation at: bit.ly/38aieqE


World-wide I am seeking who can give me strictly the right note on the thesis?

Can give Support for world frontier & Higher Education Degrees with Support My Goals!

Windgate Wednesday—Legends in the making: Amert, Anthony, Merker, and the origins of the UICB

The roots of the UICB lie in the work of three outstanding creators: the scholar-artist Kay Amert, the gently meticulous William Anthony, and the visionary leader Kim Merker. Building from the unique arts-and-humanities emphases of the University of Iowa, these maker-thinkers synthesized creative writing, cultural history, and studio practice. In 1986, the Center for the Book was officially born. Programming, courses, and apprenticeships led naturally to a Graduate Certificate credential beginning in 1995. Top-flight faculty, grant success, and wide-ranging creativity gave the program the ballast for an MFA degree beginning in 2009. All the while, the overlap and integration with humanists, librarians, designers, and conservators has kept the program lively and alert.

This issue of the Center's newsletter honors the extraordinary leadership of Kay, Bill, and Kim. We stand on the shoulders of giants! They live on, we hope, in the UICB today. The Center has been given a wonderful opportunity—UICB 2021—to keep that spirit going. The Windgate Charitable Foundation presented us with a challenge: if you raise 2.5 million dollars in the next twenty months, they said, then we will match that amount with a gift of 2.5 million dollars. You have to do it by December 31, 2021, they also said. We are humbled and stoked by the belief of the WCF and their remarkable gift.

Deadlines sharpen the mind! And they have spurred your incredible thoughtfulness. Through your generosity, we have raised 2.3 million dollars. We cannot thank you enough! And we are very grateful for recent donations that have pushed us closer to our goal. But we still are seeking around $200,000 to hit the match and we have less than two months.
Can you help us?
Please consider a gift. You can donate and learn more about UICB 2021 at the link in our bio.
Thank you!

The UICB's Karen Carcia unites mail art and letterpress display!

Karen Carcia had a plan. Aware that art worlds at the UICB make space for individual expression and opportunities for communal creativity, Carcia built into her latest letterpress project both ends of the Center’s philosophy. The UICB’s Associate Professor of Practice collaborated with Nikki Neems and friends at RSVP, Iowa City’s premier stationery store, to develop Sent. An interactive, mail-based project, Sent invites erasure and revision for a collective display of what language, letterforms, and the space between can inspire.

At once elegant and complex, Sent sent Carcia on an adventure. Glean sentences from four disparate years of local news reportage? Check. Diagram the sentences according to their grammatical patterns and lay out accordingly? Check. Handprint the sentence diagrams on blank postcards leaving plenty of space for addition and décor, mail them to a wide array of participants who are to remake their postcard canvases, instruct the recipient to send them back—postage included!—to RSVP for store window exhibition, and revisit the exhibit to shift its everchanging form? Check check check check check. If you are in the area, you can begin to see the glorious results at RSVP (140 Linn Street).

At once playful and subtly pointed, Sent also reminds its makers and audiences that we can change what we inherit. Carcia’s example to discuss the project comes from the Dick-and-Jane literacy primers of the mid-twentieth-century U.S., which told a partial story of social norms to generations of young readers. We can revise that script, Sent seems to tell us. So too, rewriting the received facts of news reportage affirms our ability to enter into public discourse and make a difference. Ideally, this sensibility also describes the Center for the Book’s teaching mission, empowering students to make their world anew through art and engagement.

With a light touch, Sent embodies much of what we stand for at the UICB: the rigors of play and possibilities for transformation, by way of careful attention to craft and community. To support such endeavors, the UICB seeks your help. We are nearing the end of UICB 2021, an exciting initiative to raise funds as part of a challenge grant from the Windgate Charitable Foundation. If we raise 2.5 million dollars by December 31, 2021, Windgate will match with a 2.5-million-dollar donation. And we are so close! Since launching in April 2020, we have raised 2.3 million dollars, thanks to all of you. We seek $200,000 in the next ten weeks! Can you help us? Please consider a gift to the Center to sustain its art worlds and creative community.

Today we welcome incoming UICB certificate student Laura Farahzad Mayer! Laura is also an MFA candidate in Art. You can check out some her wonderful work in the KK Merker gallery in North Hall this week.

Laura, on her current work and exhibition: “This work focuses on generational storytelling as it explores the relationship with my father prior to his passing as well as the relationship with my own children - two generations that did not overlap. Finding parallels in each relationship, it explores loss and life through personal experiences as well as serves as a way to preserve those stories for my children.”

Alumni Spotlight – Amy Richard, MFA 2016

Amy Richard continues to grow her business as proprietor of amy richard studio, where she produces creative work exhibiting locally and abroad, while also teaching in the community and now online. Recently, she developed an online self-guided Japanese papermaking workshop that can be taken solo or within a group format. She is also providing independent study opportunities (including online) for individuals seeking technical and/or conceptual guidance with their own papermaking explorations.

Earlier this year, Richard co-curated the Kozo Contemporary exhibition Transfiguration: From Nature to Art - 2021/2022 Biennial International Paper Fiber Art [Nantou, Taiwan].

Her writing endeavors include a quarterly column in the Hand Papermaking newsletter (“Studying Papermaking”) and most recently was invited to be a co-contributor for a chapter she will be writing with colleagues in The Art and Art Therapy of Papermaking: Material, Applications, and Methods, a much anticipated book co-edited by Drew Matott and Gretchen Miller.

Currently, Richard is working on a new series of pulp prints/paintings and sculptures for a solo show [Nov 2021]. When not in the studio, she can be found beach combing or fishing with her husband Joe or tending to their Florida kozo crop, which they harvest each winter, selling kozo bast fiber in various forms.

A recent interview with Richard can be heard on Helen Hiebert’s Paper Talk podcast series.
