Artists’ Books at the Boston Athenæum

Join Stanley Cushing, Anne C. and David J. Bromer Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts, for a viewing of selections from the Boston Athenæum’s world-class collection of artists’ books.

This is the second in a series of five events dedicated to exploring different aspects of the art of the book. Join us for Order, Harmony, and Just A Little Surprise: An Apologia for Traditional Typography by John Kristensen, Giambattista Bodoni: His Life and His World by Valerie Browne Lester, Paper: Paging through History by Mark Kurlansky, and the workshop Technology in the Conservation Lab: Bookbinding for multiple perspectives on the art, craft, and scholarship of books and bookmaking.
