In 2017, twenty-four members of book arts program in the Virginia Center for the Book created a limited-edition deck of playing cards featuring 56 unique images, as part of their annual members’ project. Known as the Pack of Lies, the deck will be displayed along with additional “book art” components of the 2017 members’ project, collectively known as The Art of the Lie.

EXHIBIT HOURS: March 21-March 25, 2018, from 12:00-5:00 PM daily

An Open House will take place on Sunday, March 25 from 1:00-3:00 PM, celebrating the exhibit and inaugurating the new book arts home of the Virginia Center for the Book.
