ABOUT THE SPONSORS:

Drawing on the rich cultural traditions of
Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Center for the Book
serves as a catalyst to advance the book as a vital
contemporary art form connecting the diverse
communities of institutions and individuals whose
passion is books.

The American Philosophical Society was founded in 1743
by John Bartram and Benjamin Franklin for the purpose
of ?promoting useful knowledge.? For the past 250
years it has served scholars, scientists, and
professionals, supporting research, discovery, and
education.

Bartram?s Garden is the oldest living botanical garden
in America. The John Bartram Association builds
awareness of the Bartram Family legacy of botany, art,
and natural science.
