Re: Bookish Weekend in Claremont

Also, on Sunday at the Library at Occidental College, in Eagle Rock, Jim &
Caroline Robertson, owners and operators of the Yolla Bolly Press, of
Covelo, Calif., have a reception and exhibit from 2 to 4, celebrating their
25 years of very special publishing.  The press issues limited edition,
hand-set, sewn, hand bound books of special note:  "The Man Who Loved Wine,"
"Babbet's Feast,"  Andre Gide's "Theseus," etc.  Extraordinary work by
equally special people.  The show is to run through January, but the
Robertsons will be there on Sunday.
