In conjunction with the Graduate English Organization, Evening Papers presents a SMALL PRESS CONFERENCE. Our first lecture in this series will be held Wednesday, February 11th, from 9-10:00pm, in Room 222.
Our speakers are:
MATVEI YANKELEVICH from Ugly Duckling Presse: www.uglyducklingpresse.org
Ugly Duckling Presse is a nonprofit art & publishing collective producing small to mid-size editions of new poetry, translations, lost works, and artist’s books. The Presse favors emerging, international, and “forgotten” writers with well-defined formal or conceptual projects that are difficult to place at other presses. Its full-length books, chapbooks, artist’s books, broadsides, magazine and newspaper all contain handmade elements, calling attention to the labor and history of bookmaking.
SARAH NICHOLLS from The Center for Book Arts: www.centerforbookarts.org
The Center for Book Arts is dedicated to preserving the traditional artistic practices of book-making, as well as exploring and encouraging contemporary interpretations of the book as an art object. Founded in 1974, it was the first not-for-profit organization of its kind in the nation, and has since become a model for others around the world.
