[BKARTS] Los Angeles Book Arts Center Lecture and Class



The Los Angeles Book Arts Center is pleased to host a free lecture by Ester
K. Smith and Dike Faust, owners of Purgatory Pie Press.

Meet the artists and hear their unique take on letterpress, art, and as they
call it, "this newfangled virtual eyewash".  Faust and Smith teach book arts,
graphic design and letterpress at the New York Center for Book Arts, Cooper
Unions and City University of New York.  They've exhibited at the Victoria and
Albert Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Harvard University.  They
also produce artist books, wedding invitations and other letterpress wonders in
their New York Studio.

Please Join us on Thursday, August 12, 2004, at 7:00 PM at the Beverly Hills
Public Library.  The library is located at 450 North Rexford Drive in Beverly
Hills.

We are also thrilled to announce that Ester K. Smith will be teaching Magic
Books And Paper Toys on August 14 and 15.  Amaze your friends with an array of
tricky book forms from a myriad of traditions.  Learn about hexiflexigons,
magic wallets, flip/flaps, animations, origami-based structures and others, from
quick models to finished books.  This is a hands on class that will run 9:30
AM to 3:30 PM Saturday and Sunday.  Please call Lisa Deutsch at
