[BKARTS] New England lecture

The New England Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers is pleased to present
an illustrated lecture by Mindy Dubansky on book designer Alice C. Morse


In 1997, Dubansky, librarian and conservator at the Metropolitan Museum of
Art, discovered a trove of cover designs by Morse in a storage area at the
Museum.   Like her contemporaries Sarah Wyman Whitman and Margaret
Armstrong, Morse designed wonderful bindings, emblematic of the American
Decorative Arts Movement.  Over a ten-year period, Dubansky collected 80
published books designed by Morse and recently, curated a exhibit on Morse's
life and work at the Grolier Club.  She has written a book about Morse, The
Proper Decoration of Book Covers: The Life and Work of Alice C. Morse.  


Please join us to hear a delightful speaker describe her findings about an
important designer from an exciting period of book publishing.  


The talk will talk place Thursday, May 8th at the Schlesinger Library at 6
pm.  Free and open to the public.  Books will be available for sale.


Directions can be found at the library's website:
