Hedi Kyle is an acclaimed pioneer in the world of book arts. Her one-of-a-kind constructions are in the collections of numerous institutions and individuals and have been the feature of multiple exhibitions all over the world. She co-founded the Book Preservation Center in New York and the Paper & Book Intensive. She is an honorary member of the Guild of Book Workers and formerly taught in the Graduate Program for Book Arts and Printmaking at the University of the Arts. She was also Head Conservator at the American Philosophical Society. Ms. Kyle has mentored and touched the lives of a generation of conservators and book artists.
Ulla Warchol graduated from The Cooper Union in New York City with a degree in architecture. After working in the field in the 1990s, Ulla has spent the last two decades developing a multidisciplinary approach to structure. She leans toward a broad exploration of materials and techniques in both large-scale and small-scale works: from buildings and set design to books and textiles.
