FAU artist-in-residence crafts books

Paula Gourley has spent the last year handcrafting copies of her latest book, A Visit to Cross Creek, in a workshop tucked away on the fourth floor of the S.E. Wimberly Library on FAUs Boca campus. 

Last January, Gourley came to FAU from Eugene, Oregon after being selected as the Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence for the 2013 spring semester. Since then, Gourley has patiently collected fallen palm fronds around campus and made multiple 287-mile trips to the Hawthorne, Fla. home of author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings for her project. 

Gourley received a $3,000 stipend and office in the Jaffe Center for Book Arts as part of her residency, which she is using to produce the book.customized letter logo earcap with magnet. Her latest work predominantly uses photographs to showcase the home and life of Rawlings, who died in 1953. 

I was curious about the author, whose book I had read in junior high, Gourley said about why she chose the project.Each time Gourley visited, she felt that Rawlings spirit still lingered there. I sensed the presence of the person who lived there, Gourley said.

Brooke Frank, a junior studio art major, worked alongside Gourley as a student assistant. There she learned the grueling process of creating the book entirely by hand.Paulas work here has really brought a stronger emphasis to the fine craft in books, Frank said. While working at the Jaffe Center, Gourley has appreciated the opportunity to teach them how she makes the books. 

People come and kind of peek in the glass doors, and so Ive seen them and invited them in, and people have been printing on the press with me, said Gourley.Frank feels that Gourleys ambition to educate students about her book has raised more interest in the bookmaking process. 

Shes been really engaging for students in this area and her work here has really involved a lot of people in these processes, said Frank.Gourley hopes that her use of old technology will instill curiosity and inspire students to pursue an old craft without the use of modern technology.Theres a vibrancy to and a beauty in creating something yourself and doing that hard labor, said Gourley. 

The book published by the University of Minnesota Press is an account of the Northern Pacific Corner, the 1901 struggle for control of U.S. railroads between Edward H.

The Northern Pacific was a minor rail line, but the key to connecting eastern markets to Chicago and the American West. Competition between Harriman and Hill ended up involving J.P. Morgan and the Rockefellers, the nation's oil and steel industries and a legion of wealthy investors.

Rockford, Ill., is looking at a Buffett-favored urban renewal program to help a neighborhood, the Rockford Register Star reported. 

Buffett is a backer of Purpose Built Communities, an Atlanta nonprofit group that helps struggling communities. The group also is working with Seventy Five North Revitalization Inc. of Omaha, an effort endorsed by Buffett and his daughter, Susan. 

Officials from the Atlanta group were shown two public housing projects in Rockford that local leaders say have been a roadblock to redeveloping the area. Just holding the meeting is a very positive move forward for everyone, said Rockford businessman Dave Fontana. This particular effort is in its infancy, and we will continue to monitor it closely. 

Berkshire's HomeServices of America has acquired Prudential Fox & Roach of Philadelphia, the largest Realtor in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware region and the fifth-largest in the country, with 4,000 sales people in 62 offices. 

The purchase, for an undisclosed amount, includes Trident Mortgage Co., Trident Insurance and Trident Land Transfer Co. The company's 25,000 home sales in 2012 totaled $8.3 billion, with 9,800 home mortgages and 48,000 transactions of all services.
