An exhibition of handmade books and watercolors by internationally 
recognized book artist Timothy Ely.

Tim Ely creates unique manuscript books that are lavishly painted and 
drawn visual narratives, often including maps, "cribiform" writings 
(invented scripts), and odd arcana, and are about such topics as natural 
sciences, mathematics, architecture and sacred geometry. He is 
influenced by comic books, Steam Punk design, and the study of history, 
religion, and sociolgical and psychological phenomena. The works often 
include soil, sand, pigments, metals, inks, resins, and wax. In 
addition, Tim is a 21st-century bookbinder and printmaker who has 
developed bookbinding tools and equipment. His work is in library 
special collections and private collections worldwide. Tim lives in 
Colfax, Washington.
