Exhibition Opening: Monday, September 28, 5-7 p.m.
In 1912, a group of San Francisco bibliophiles proposed an exhibition of locally produced fine press books for the forthcoming Panama-Pacific International Exposition. When advised that their proposal would carry more weight if made by an official organization, they founded the Book Club of California. Though the envisioned exhibition was never realized, the Book Club—and its mission to promote the art of the book—still thrives. This show imagines what might have been on view in that original display.
More information about the exhibition coming soon.
In conjunction with PPIE100, the city-wide celebration of the 100th anniversary of the PPIE.
