[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
(1863-1961).  

 

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:
