[BKARTS] SoCal APHA Book Club #3

Southern California Chapter, American Printing History Association
Book Club #3 Gathering
August 25, 2008 at 7:00 p.m.

We are pleased to announce the third in our series of APHA Book Club conversations, which will be held on Monday, August 25 at 7:00 p.m. in the evening. The book which gives us a structure for the meetings is Frederick G. Kilgour’s The Evolution of the Book, which you can find used on Amazon for about $30.

We have discussed the first five chapters in Kilgour on the Dynamics of the Book, Incunables on Clay, Papyrus Rolls, The Greco-Roman World, and the Codex 100-700. The discussion on the 25th will be on Chapter 6 in Kilgour on Islam, 622-1300.

We will meet at Sue Kaplan’s home in Venice at 7:00 p.m. on one of the famed walking streets. Sue’s Craftsman-style house is remarkable, and she will show you her letterpress studio as well. If you didn’t attend the first Book Club meeting, you are still entirely welcome. And if you cannot find time to read Kilgour, you will still find illuminating conversations at our friendly gathering.

We are also planning a series of visits to collections which house artifacts which we are discussing at the Book Club. Please look for the next announcement of upcoming visits.
