Ninety from the Nineties: A Decade of Printing

Dates:  11/7/03 - 5/28/04

Location:  Edna Barnes Salomon Room (Third Floor), Humanities and Social
Sciences Library, 5th Avenue and 42nd Street, New York, NY 10018-2788
Hours:   Tues, Wed: 11 to 7:30; Thurs-Sat: 10 to 6
Description:

Ninety from the Nineties is part of a tradition at The New York Public
Library that began in 1968 with Sixty from the Sixties: An Exhibition of
Distinctive Editions. Once every ten years since then the Library has
mounted an exhibition of books acquired by the Rare Books Division during
the preceding decade. These exhibitions featured books, pamphlets,
broadsides, and printed ephemera from printers at work in the Americas,
Great Britain, and Europe.
As part of its mission, the Rare Books Division in the Humanities and Social
Sciences Library collects representative works from printers engaged in the
craft of letterpress printing. The purpose of Ninety from the Nineties: A
Decade of Printing is twofold. It highlights selected works that were added
to the collection over the past decade and attempts to illustrate current
trends among the artists and craftsmen engaged in the book arts.
