The Book Arts and Special Collections Center of the San Francisco Public
Library Presents

Letterpress and Lightning, with Alisa Golden

The 12th annual Book Arts & Special Collections Center Holiday Lecture
will showcase noted local printmaker and writer Alisa Golden, who will
deliver an engaging presentation on letterpress printing on Sunday,
December 10, at the Main Library.

Golden, who has used letterpress printing for the past 23 years, will
show and read from a selection of her letterpress editions and recent
hand-painted books. She will talk about the funny, strange, and
emotional things that turn into those books: a love story that includes
squashes; memories of a loved one lost; dreams; a nest in a dryer vent;
and others. 

Golden teaches at the San Francisco Art Institute, California College of
the Arts, the San Francisco Center for the Book and the Harding After
School Enrichment Program (El Cerrito). She is the author of three
instructional books, including her recent Expressive Handmade Books (New
York: Sterling, 2005). Alisa's books are in the Center's Grabhorn
Collection.

Sponsored by the Library's Marjorie G. & Carl W. Stern Book Arts &
Special Collections Center, Letterpress and Lightning will be presented
3:00-5:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 10, in the Latino/Hispanic Community
Room B, at the Main Library, 100 Larkin St., Civic Center.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information,
please call (415) 557-4560.
