[BKARTS] SF Center for the Book - Events and Summer Catalog



Greetings from the San Francisco Center for the Book -
Our summer catalog (covering May through August) will be at the presses soon and should be on our website Monday, March 26. Stay posted at www.sfcb.org. Also on our horizon are a couple of exciting and free events:


Poets Pulling Prints with Clemens Starck –
A poetry reading and release of limited edition broadsides
Friday, March 30 from 7-9pm
at the The San Francisco Center for the Book
(location details below)

Poets Pulling Prints is a free ongoing Center series that celebrates poetry both aloud and in print. SFCB celebrates an original voice of American poetry, poet and writer Clemens Starck. After dropping out of Princeton University, Clemens Starck continued his education on the open road, riding freight trains and writing poetry. He worked as a ranch hand, newspaper reporter, door-to-door salesman, merchant seaman and construction worker, penning his poems simultaneously. Signed letterpress broadsides, designed and printed by Jerry Reddan, will be available.

How I Work as a Book Artist with Peter Madden - A lecture and conversation
Thursday, April 5 from 7-9pm
at the The San Francisco Center for the Book


Peter Madden's book art incorporates a wide range of imaging techniques in combination with unusual materials to produce arresting effects. He teaches book arts and alternative photo processes at the Museum of Fine Arts in his home town of Boston, and has taught at a variety of other places nationwide. More information on Madden is available at www.petermadden.com.

SFCB’s new series, How I Work as a Book Artist, focuses on the creative process of artists working in the book form. There are as many approaches to this medium as there are practitioners, and we’ll feature artists working in a wide variety of styles.

Both events will take place at:
The San Francisco Center for the Book
300 De Haro Street (entrance on 16th Street)
San Francisco, CA 94103
