Matrix Illustrated Fine Printing: Whittington and Matrix in America

“Like walking into an encyclopedia of book arts” is how curator Barbara Henry describes the exhibition, which showcases the extraordinary work produced at John Randle’s Whittington Press in the UK, and in its letterpress journal, Matrix. “Possibly the greatest achievement of British fine printing since the war.” – Kenneth Auchincloss on Matrix.

Rocco Scary: The Last Place on Earth This exhibition of Rocco Scary’s recent work is about the relationship between place and memory. His stacking book structures are made of both paper and metal, and can be taken apart or un-stacked to reveal evocative images and scenes in miniature. The work is inspired by the artist’s love of his home state, New Jersey, where overdevelopment threatens to destroy the region’s character and history.

Julie Chen: 2008 Sally R. Bishop Faculty Fellow Julie Chen is proprietor of Flying Fish Press in Berkeley, where she creates and publishes many sculptural, limited-edition artist’s books. She is an instructor at the San Francisco Center for the Book and Professor at Mills College. Her work integrates modern type and design into traditionally functional book formats.
