Craftsman to Collector: Selling and Buying the Fine Press Book
Friday, September 30, 2016 1 pm-4 pm
To kick things off on Friday, we will have an educational symposium, free of charge and open to librarians, private press printers, and any other interested parties. Led by panelists from a variety of backgrounds, the symposium will be part presentation and part discussion.
This year's theme is "The Texts of Private Press Books - Should it Come from the Past or the Present?," and will focus on the study of how and why a Press chooses a Text.
Speakers will include Mark Dimunation of the Rare Book & Special Collections of the Library of Congress, Ron Patkus, head of Special Collections at Vassar, and a speech by a press from the Fine Book Association (TBD).
