Re: [BKARTS] San Francisco


In addition to PCBA's BookWorks 2006, there's also the Jack Kerouac exhibit, featuring the 120 ft. long scroll typescript of On the Road. It's in the Jewett Gallery near the café that Signa mentioned.

And when you're done looking at BookWorks, drop by Book Arts & Special Collections, just a very short walk from the exhibit. The collections include books from over 400 fine/private presses, beautiful contemporary calligraphy, and the largest wit & humor collection in the world.

Check the second URL below for more info as well as our open hours, which are different from the rest of the library.

I hope to see you when you're in town.
