"Making Books: Rocky Stinehour Going Back and Forth With Jerry Kelly"

in conversation with Jerry Kelly
Tuesday, 18 November
Wellesley College

The American Printing History Association is pleased to announce that
renowned scholar-printer Roderick Stinehour will give the 2003 Lieberman
lecture on
18 November at Wellesley College, Wellesley, Massachusetts.

Roderick Stinehour is internationally recognized as a renowned printer and
designer of books. His half-century career has spanned an era of radical change
in the technology of printing, as well as unprecedented change in the way
books are conceived and distributed. In 1950, after study with Ray Nash and
graduation from Dartmouth College, Stinehour established, with his wife and
brother,
The Stinehour Press in the village of Lunenburg, Vermont. This location, on a
farm in the remote Northest Kingdom, was an unlikely site for such an end
eavor to take root and flourish. Yet, from its modest beginnings, with
persistence, idealistic vision, and the ability to attract a skilled group
of associates,
the Press has grown in competence and influence, becoming one of the
countryâ??s premier printing establishments. The Stinehour Press published
the journal
Printing and Graphic Arts and founded Dartmouth College's annual Book Arts
Workshop. A scholar-printer in the finest humanistic tradition, Stinehour
has been
honored by nearly every tribute granted in the book arts, including the
Frederic W. Goudy Award, the Benjamin Franklin Award, and the American Printing
History Associationâ??s Laureate Award. In 1981 he received an honorary
degree from
Dartmouth College.

In this presentation Roderick Stinehour will discuss his work and ideas with
noted designer, calligrapher, and printer Jerry Kelly, who served as
designer/vice-president of The Stinehour Press from 1991 to 1999. Himself
the recipient
of many awards from (among others) the Type Directors Club, aiga, and the
Society of Typographic Designers, Kelly has published widely on typography and
calligraphy.

The event will take place Tuesday, 18 November, 4:30 p.m., at Wellesley
College, Clapp Library Lecture Room, 1st floor. A reception will follow.
