FOR JEAN GROLIER & HIS FRIENDS: 125 YEARS OF GROLIER CLUB EXHIBITIONS & PUBLICATIONS, 1884-2009
Ong, George and Holzenberg, Eric
The Grolier Club is devoted to sharing the beauty of typography, printing, illustration, and other areas of book design and production. Through more than 850 exhibitions and almost 500 publications, the Grolier Club has strived to develop an appreciation in America for books and prints. Produced to accompany the Grolier Club exhibition held December 2008 to February 2009, this volume explores the history of the Grolier through its ground-breaking program of exhibitions, and its long and distinguished series of publications. It provides for the first time in a single volume, comprehensive and detailed lists of Grolier Club exhibitions and publications, as well as histories of these activities at the Club. One of only 300 copies on mould-made Hahnemuhle paper, this is a publication in the highest Grolier Club tradition, one of a series marking the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Grolier Club in 1884. There are over 200 illustrations, many in color, some tipped in.
