On Wednesday, November 11th from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. the Thacher Gallery and the Donohue Rare Book Room will hold an opening reception for the exhibition “Eric Gill, Iconographer: Engravings from the Albert Sperisen Collection.” During the reception there will be an opportunity to print on the Rare Book Room’s 1854 Albion handpress, once owned by the firm of Hague & Gill. Students from the Art + Architecture course Printmaking I will assist guests who wish to print a broadside keepsake featuring an Eric Gill image and quote. There is nothing quite like pulling an impression on an antique handpress. To experience the art and craft of letterpress printing, please visit the Donohue Rare Book Room during the opening reception. For more information, please call (415) 422-2036.
Head Librarian, Donohue Rare Book Room
