BCC | The Book As Art Object in California, Then and Now

Hosted/Organized by: Book Club of California

This event is co-presented by the American Printing History Association Northern California

The history of printing in California, though still relatively young, is yet venerable, spotty, and incomplete. In this talk, Peter Koch surveys roughly a century of printing in the Golden State that emphasises the book as a work of art, from the Arts and Crafts movement to more contemporary movements. From this fragmented history, Koch will pick up on threads that nevertheless tie seemingly disparate printerly activity into a discernible–if polysemic–tradition.
