Oct 5: 11:15am-12:15pm, Snow Bound: The Making of an Artist’s Book – Laurie Whitehill.
In September of 1915, the artist’s grandparents, and a few other hikers, were stranded by a severe storm in the newly opened Lake-of-the-Clouds hut, located just below the summit of Mt. Washington. Enduring bitter cold, scant food and no way to communicate with the outside world, they were trapped for 5 days. This book retells their survival story with a focus on the female perspective of her grandmother. The artist will give a presentation on the making of her book, with anecdotes and visuals from her research and writing, the creation and hand printing of the illustrations and text, and the final hand binding of a small edition. A copy of this book resides in the collections of the museum.
