The Pacific Center for Book Arts 2005 Calendar Show

As the year comes to a close, some of us get aflutter trying to make the rough transition from 2004 to 2005. If the loss of your day planner has you feeling an urge to jump, don't despair! Just head for the Pacific Center for Book Arts' special exhibition/sale of splendid and whimsical calendars designed and created by contemporary book artists.

As usual, book artists push the limits of what is even definable as a
calendar. These collectible, limited edition calendar forms range
from the tradition to the experimental, and include calligraphy,
letterpress printing, unique bindings, handmade paper, book
engineering, collage, photography, and illustration. Fantastic
featured book artists include Nicholas Yeager, Marie Kelzer, Penny
Nii, Karen Switzer, Kate Godfrey, Terry Horrigan, Mitsuko Baum, Saul
Rosenfield, Patricia Wakida, and Val Van Sice.

The 2005 Calendar Show opens at the San Francisco Center for the
Book, located at 300 de Haro Street in San Francisco, on January 7,
2005 from 6-9 p.m. with a special reception for the calendar artists,
live!  A percentage of sales at the opening reception will benefit
PCBA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to book arts.

Regular gallery hours are January 7 through February 25, 2005; Monday
through Friday, 10-6 at the San Francisco Center for the Book. For
directions to the Center, call 415-565-0545.

Pacific Center for Book Arts is a member-service organization
committed to providing our members opportunities to show their work,
socialize with other practitioners of the book arts, and learn from
their peers. Our members include calligraphers, custom binders,
printmakers, conservators, and many others.  Visit our website at
