A survey of contemporary implementations of the Coptic structure from an historical perspective, the exhibition was curated by Zahra Partovi at the Center for Book Arts from April 12 to June 14, 1997. The illustrations are drawings of Coptic cover designs by Theodore C. Petersen for the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York, and were printed onto vellum. Two hundred copies were xerographically reproduced on Mohawk paper and bound by volunteers at the Center using an early stabbed sewing model also employed by the Copts, however these copies are folded, yet unbound. With an introduction by John Sharpe.
