The Best of the Best at the San Francisco Public Library
On view from May 7 through June 27, 2002 at the Main Library, Lower Level,
Jewett Gallery

The Guild of Book Workers' traveling exhibition of members' work, The Best
of the Best, will close its nearly 2 year tour of the United States at the
San Franciso Public Library. The Guild, founded in 1906, is a national
organization of printers, bookbinders, calligraphers, papermakers, and
other workers in the book arts. This juried exhibition, about midway
through its one and a half year tour throughout the U.S., features the work
of 33 participants from 18 states. It showcases a marvelous variety of work
produced by traditional techniques as well as the latest technologies of
inkjet printing, in both usual and unusual formats.

There will be an opening reception on Tuesday, May 7th, from 6:00  8:00
p.m., in the Lower Level, Latino/Hispanic Community Meeting Room. The
exhibition and reception are co-sponsored by the Hand Bookbinders of
California. For hours, directions, and contact information see

You also can view The Best of the Best exhibition online at the Guild of
Book Workers' website <http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byorg/gbw>. The fully
illustrated catalogue, in postcard format and housed in a hinged plexiglass
case, will be available for purchase for $20.00 in the Mortimer Rare Book
Room during November and December. The catalog can also be ordered online.

Thank you to all who viewed the exhibition as it travelled around the
nation, or online. The Guild's next travelling exhibition will open in the
Fall of 2003 in Denver, CO.
