Books, manuscripts, and scrolls, for example, often confined to inhospitable storage quarters, need protection. Housing them in suitable, archival and yet attractive enclosures is a sensible solution. In her illustrated lecture, Hedi Kyle will speak about the dynamic relationship between conservation and the book arts, one in which a cross-fertilization of ideas is common and vital, leading to the development new techniques and structures benefiting both fields.

Hedi Kyle recently retired as Head Conservator at the American Philosophical Society. She is Adjunct Professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. At the University she teaches book structures to MFA students of the Graduate Program in Book Arts and Printmaking. She graduated from the Werk-Kunst Schule in Wiesbaden, Germany. After a brief career as a graphic designer, her interest turned to book arts and book conservation. She is also co-founder of Paper and Book Intensive (PBI), and has given workshops in the U.S., Canada, and Switzerland for the past twenty years.

The lecture is sponsored by the Brodsky Endowment for the Advancement of Library Conservation. The Brodsky Endowment sponsors programs that promote and advance knowledge of library conservation theory, practice, and application to wide audiences, both on the Syracuse University campus and in the Central New York region. We look forward to your attendance at this event.
