AUTHOR EVENING WITH BRUCE KENNETT
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 5-7 PM
Join us at the bookstore for an evening with local author Bruce Kennett presenting his book W. A. Dwiggins: A Life in Design. This book offers an engaging and inspiring overview of the designer’s wide-ranging creative output and lasting impact on the graphic arts. Kennett’s careful research, warm prose, and inclusion of numerous personal accounts from Dwiggins’s friends and contemporaries portray not only a brilliant designer, but a truly likable character.
Over the years Bruce has worked as a printer and compositor (letterpress and offset), designer, photographer, teacher, presenter, and editor at large. His deep appreciation for music took him to work at Transparent Audio and Listener magazine. His clients have ranged from the Los Angeles Children’s Museum and Folger Shakespeare Library to Boston College Law School and L.L. Bean.
Since 1980 Bruce has given lectures at universities and conferences on topics pertaining to the graphic arts and history of printing. Among the institutions are Harvard, Dartmouth College, Rochester Institute of Technology, Cooper Union, San Francisco Public Library, Boston’s Society of Printers, the Grolier Club, and TypeCon.
Bruce’s studio is located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, in a beautiful converted barn built in the early 1800s.
