 I regularly feature the Keoughs’ ANTARCTICA when photo-related classes
     come to our library and it remains a title that piques the interest of students
     and faculty alike.                                              Jon Evans — Director, Hirsch Library
                                                                                            Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, USA

 Exhilarating. A remarkable piece of art. I never before realized the color
     of Antarctica.
                         Roy Flukinger — Senior Curator   Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center
                                                                                                      University of Texas, USA

 Now I know how much two Gentoo Penguins weigh.
     This must be the heaviest book we have, rivaling a couple of the pulpit bibles.
     The binding is first rate, and the photographs are more beautiful in real life.
     Excellently printed on perfect paper. The whole presentation is lovely.                                              Amanda Bernstein — Rare Books Librarian, Western Bank Library
                                                                                           University of Sheffield, UK

 We have received the astounding ANTARCTICA today. Remarkable!
     The binding and the linen box are amazing. That’s before I even start talking
     about the fine photographs. This must have been a real labour of love.                                       Evelyn Flanagan — Head of Special Collections, James Joyce Library
                                                                                   University College of Dublin, Ireland

 Rosemarie and Pat put so much love and care into this book. It shows in
     every page that we turn. It is one of the finest new books we’ve ever bought.                                               Christine Vincent — Special Collections Librarian, Norlin Library
                                                                                   University of Colorado at Boulder, USA

 A glorious book, both in form and content. ANTARCTICA is a significant
     addition to our collection and I am so much looking forward to being able to share
     it with our visitors when the new library opens.
                                                                         Mary Lijnzaad — Manager Library and Research
                                                                         MONA, Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania, Australia

 I love to show ANTARCTICA to students and faculty and watch their jaws drop.
     Then I explain what went into the making of this book — artistic vision, technical
     quality, production values and painstaking attention to every detail — and watch
     their jaws drop even farther. It’s an absolutely stunning addition to our growing
     Artists’ Books Collection.  Diane Shaw — Directo, Special Collections, Skillman Library
                                                                                           Lafayette College

 At Yale University, ANTARCTICA is permanently on display in the Arts of the
     Book Collection and this piece catches the attention of everyone who walks
     in to the reading room. This work is the perfect start to a conversation about what
     a book can be and how a well designed and constructed book can add to the
     knowledge inside it. Every aspect of ANTARCTICA is well done and worth
     consideration, from the physical construction, to the layout, to the photography,
     which gives me many possible ways this book can help with our educational mission.
     With this one work, I can connect with graduate students from the School of Art,
     as well as undergraduates in the humanities and the sciences. The beauty of the book
     draws in the students, and the durability allows me to feel free to use it again
     and again without worrying about its fragility.
                           Jae Rossman — Head, Special Collections, Robert B. Hass Family Arts Library
                                                                                           Yale University, USA

 Such a pleasure to open ANTARCTICA and see its breathtaking images as
     well as the artists’ essay. I am particularly taken with the contrast and variety
     that comes with each turning of the page—from the entrancing patterns of the
     surface texture of the Blue Iceberg, to the stunning color of the Sunset of Boyd Strait
     and Smith Island, to the playful facing-page juxtaposition of the Birders in
     tussock grass, South Georgia with the Macaroni penguin colony, Cooper Bay,
     South Georgia. The volume is also an important record of the landscape of the
     Antarctic as it once was. ... I am eager to show the tome to book arts and
    environmental studies classes alike!
                                              Elspth Healey — Special Collections Curator
                                                     Kenneth Spencer Research Library, University of Kansas, USA

 ANTARCTICA por Rosemarie and Pat Keough excede todas as expectativas,
      tanto na qualidade das photographies, no material usado para impressão e
     encadernação. Um livro e uma obra de arte para exposição em museus
     e bibliotecas!

     ANTARCTICA by Rosemarie and Pat Keough exceeds all expectations, in
     the quality of the photographs, and the material used for printing and binding.
     The book is a work of art for exhibition in museums and libraries!
                                     Dr. Jefferson Cardia Simões Vice-President, (SCAR/ICSU)
                                     Brazilian Antarctic Programme. Centro Polar e Climático
                                     Instituto de Geociências, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul

 ANTARCTICA is incredible. It is the best example of modern fine-press
      photobook and binding that we have and will be of great use to our photography
      and book arts students. Catherine Robertson — Library Director, Paul M. Scott Library
                                                                                           Monserrat College of Art, USA

 ANTARCTICA is the most beautiful book to cross my desk in 20 years.                                                                                Wendy Witt — Acquisitions Librarian
                                                                                University of Texas at San Antonio, USA

 Our Easter present was delivered today. ANTARCTICA arrived in Heidelberg.
     It is an incredible book, the contents, the pictures, the paper, the presentation box
     with detailed instructions... simply GREAT!! And last but not least: the continent
     of Antarctica.                     Dr. Karin Zimmermann — Head, Special Collections
                                                                                   Heidelberg University Library, Germany

  It will be so much fun to show to students. The penguin photos are wonderful!
     Students often ask to see our smallest and largest books.
     I will now add the heaviest to the rotation!
                                     Jessy Randall — Curator, History and Future of the Book
                                                                                 Tutt Library,  Colorado College, USA

 We're all so impressed, both by the spectacular photographic images and the
     fine craftsmanship in the creation of the volume. ANTARCTICA is a wonderful
     addition to our Special Collections Library and will be of particular interest to staff
     and students in our Earth and Ocean Sciences disciplines and literature students
     looking into texts on 19th century exploration.                                                                                Monica Crump — University Librarian
                                                                                University of Galway, Ireland

  ANTARCTICA was delivered yesterday afternoon and we're absolutely
     delighted to have it. It’s so much more stunning “in person” than on the web!
     We are most grateful to you for thinking of our collections and for
     enriching them in such a beautiful way.
                                     Lynda Corey Claassen — Director, Special Collections & Archives
                                                                                  University of California, San Diego, USA

 It is an utterly beautiful book. I am looking forward to sharing it with our photo
department as well as our print department as an example of exemplary binding.
And the clamshell box is perfection.        
                                                   Laura Ponikvar — Director, Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library
                                                                                   Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland, USA

 ANTARCTICA will make a fantastic addition to our artists’ books and
photography collections, as well as our subject strength in Antarctic exploration.
We look forward to using it for classroom instruction and future exhibitions.
                            Christopher Raab — Associate Librarian, Archives & Special Collections
                                                                        Franklin & Marshall College, USA

 We are greatly impressed at the quality of both the book and customized enclosure.
    The materials are all top quality, and we love the variety of textures involved.
(I especially like the blue/grey velvet doublures and custom “ice pack” fly sheets.
It is quite the visual and tactile experience as you first engage with the volume!)
The photography is also outstanding, and the entire product a genuine work of art.
I love the mix of landscape, seascape, wildlife, and close-up photography.
And the light capture is fantastic. A wonderful and inspiring collection of images.
                     Christopher Raab — Associate Librarian, Archives & Special Collections
                                                                          Franklin & Marshall College, USA

 Absolutely gorgeous. What an exciting book.        
                                                               Dean Debolt — University Librarian/Archivist
                                                                                           University of West Florida Library, USA

 ANTARCTICA attracted a small crowd of librarians as we looked through.
    The pictures are sublime and there were comments about how interesting the
    texture of the iceberge ice is, how otherworldly the landscape is, how pristine
    and untouched the nature looks, and even how yellow the penguin’s feathers
    were in the close-up. We certainly wondered how you took that photo!        
                                                  Saffron Shore — Academic Liaison Librarian for School of Arts
                                                                                           Oxford Brooks University, UK

Yale University maintains a complete archive of the Keoughs’ bookarts endeavours.
As shared November 2013

Momentous for the Keough is their relationship with Yale University. Jae Rossman, Assistant Director for Special Collections, Robert B. Hass Family Arts Library, spent a week at the Keough home and studio earlier this year reviewing materials in stored in filing cabinets and boxes. Subsequently she wrote to the Keoughs that Yale is “honored to become the caretakers of your archive, providing access to researchers, artists, and students so that they can learn from your impressive careers.” She said that this is the “dream collection” inclusive of storyboards, drafts, production proofs, brass dies, correspondence, budgeting, accounting, media reviews and interviews etc. Thus far two shipments of heavy boxes of archived documents have been forwarded to Yale. The Keoughs had quite the time adding file notes, removing duplication etc, so that future academics/researchers have a complete picture of what has gone into the creation of their works over these past three decades. There is much more to put together, and this is a great start. The Keoughs are committed to continue to forward materials as long as they are involved with photography and the book arts – which likely will be for the rest of their lives. Of note, the Keoughs are the first (and as of 2013, the only) Canadians whose archives is maintained in Yale’s Arts Library archives.
