Craftsman to Collector: Selling and Buying the Fine Press Book
Friday, October 3, 2014 10 am-3 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 "Craftsman to Collector: Selling and Buying the Fine Press Book," and will focus on the various ways that fine press printers share their books with the world, including book fairs (like our own!), print advertising, personal visits, selling online, and selling through booksellers.
Speakers will include John Randle of the Whittington Press; Russell Maret, type designer and printer; Simon Lawrence of the Fleece Press; Tim Murray, head of special collections at the University of Delaware Library; Vicky and Bill Stewart of Vamp and Tramp Booksellers; and Ian Kahn of Lux Mentis Booksellers.
