Reading the Future: Experimental Books from Yale

Opening Reception Friday, June 11

Admission Free

The San Francisco Center for the Book is pleased to announce an exhibition
devoted to current student work in book design from the MFA design program
at Yale University. Highly innovative and forward thinking, this show
represents the current work of some of the most talented young designers in
the United States.

The exhibition contains an amazing variety of approaches to the book format.
A small sampling of what are the culminating efforts of a two-year program,
these pieces push the boundaries of book structure, imagery, text,
typography and the mediums and tools that can be used in their creation. In
short, they represent a radical take on all possible elements of design.
Running through August 13, the show is curated by Brian Janusiak and
includes the work of 25 students.
