THE GROLIER CLUB CREATES: BOOK ARTS BY CLUB MEMBERS.
The Grolier Club membership consists of private and institutional collectors; the antiquarian book trade; book scholars; and practitioners in the book arts, both amateurs and professional. No matter the reason for their interest, all Grolier Club members appreciate good design, fine bindings, letterforms, quality paper, and all the other facets of books. This book celebrates the 125th anniversary of the Club by displaying the work of twenty-nine members who are active in the fields of printing, book design, bookbinding, printmaking, illustration, calligraphy, and the production of artists books. The Grolier Club Creates showcases the work of each member, provides a brief description of the work, and a small essay written by the member. It is beautifully illustrated with a photograph or illustration for each entry.
