Bruce Whiteman,  the Head Librarian of the William Andrews Clark Memorial 
Library, UCLA, will  conduct a tour of the Clark and its book arts-related 
collections. After a  brief tour of the building and the current exhibition 
(on the English  Restoration), participants will have an opportunity to 
examine a range of  books of typographic and artistic interest, from 
incunables   (fifteenth-century books) to some of the great books of the 
eighteenth,  nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. Some of the artists and 
printers  included are William Morris, François-Louis Schmied, Eric Gill, 
Saul Marks,  Maureen Cummings, and Peter Koch.

The Clark Library has one of the great  press book collections on the West 
Coast, with a special focus on English  printing revival books and 
California printers. Bruce Whiteman has been the  Head Librarian at the 
Clark since 1996, and is a writer and poet as well as  a librarian. He is 
eternally grateful to printers Carolee Campbell and  Gloria Kondrup for 
making some of his poems into beautiful books.
