John DePol Exhibit at CBA



THE CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS
is pleased to announce:

March 30 to May 31, 2001 In the Main Gallery:

Endgrain Designs & Repetitions: The Pattern Papers of John DePol

Cathleen A. Baker, proprietor of The Legacy Press, has published a letterpress printed
book of the same title featuring DePol's pattern papers.

Since the 1950s, the American master of wood engraving, John DePol, has been cutting small
endgrain blocks featuring subjects from nature, the heavens, and the Book Arts, as well as
fantastic abstract, geometric designs. Although many of these images have been made into
patterns and used as binding papers in a number of important fine press books, the full
breadth of this particular aspect of DePol's artistry has never before been exhibited.
Baker is curator of the exhibit which features 117 of DePol's pattern papers.

The new Center for Book Arts Gallery is located on the third floor at 28 West 27th Street,
Manhattan. Our beautiful exhibit cases are always filled with exciting work, and you are
welcome to come to  to see it.  The Gallery is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday
through Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free and open to the
public.
