An artists trail of Objects that are books but don't look like books

This exhibition of artists handmade 'books', will form a trail in the Williamson Gallery, so that visitors can pick up a map and find each book.

Although the books will not be hidden - they will clearly be on display in large glass cabinets which also house the gallery collections of pottery and model ships, they will be books that can easily blend in with the contents of the cabinets.

Therefore, the books will be made of less common book materials - found objects, toys, ceramics etc.  They must be books, that don't look like books.
