Learn to 'Make Books – and Chili' With King Library Press

Published: Nov 26, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 26, 2012) — Award-winning book artist David Esslemont will  discuss his experiences in the book arts and give an outline of his current project, preparation of a cookbook, for the King Library Press’s 2012 Book Arts Lecture at the University of Kentucky. “Making Books – and Chili” begins 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, at the Special Collections Library in the Great Hall, second floor of the Margaret I. King Building. The lecture is free and open to the public.

 

A figure of international reputation, Esslemont is an artist, printer and bookbinder. He studied at London’s Central School of Art and Design and served as director of the Gregynog Press, a historic private press associated with the University of Wales. In 1991, his work received the prestigious European Felice Feliciano Award. He now continues his work in Decorah, Iowa.

 

The biennial King Library Press Book Arts Lectures honor Victor and Carolyn Hammer, Lexingtonians who were prominent in the field of American private presses. Carolyn, former curator of rare nooks at UK Libraries, was founder of the King Library Press.

 

The Esslemont lecture is presented by the King Library Press at UK Libraries. The press is devoted to the tradition of fine printing and produces books and broadsides. Recent publications available from King Library Press include a portfolio of five poems by Kentucky Poet Laureate Jane Gentry Vance, Necia Harkless's "Heart to Heart" and Abraham Lincoln's "Second Inaugural Address."
