Postscript, Boston Bookmen

As subscribers will know, Nick Basbanes interviewed independent book publisher David R. Godine in our current issue, which was quite a treat. We even got a look at Godine’s Kelmscott Chaucer. As a postscript to Nick’s column, I offer a few notes:

DRG+poster1.jpgOne, Godine just released his fortieth anniversary poster (seen here) designed by Glenna Lang. It was hand-silkscreened in eight colors on fine acid-free paper by master printer Luther Davis at Axelle Editions in Brooklyn, NY, in a limited edition of 250 prints, each signed and numbered by the artist.

Two, a Godine exhibit just opened last week at the Grolier Club in New York, so if you are in town for the holidays, don’t miss it. David R. Godine, Publisher: Celebrating Forty Years of Books That Matter For People Who Care runs through Jan. 7.

Three, are you still sifting through our 50 Books About Books feature? If so, perhaps you missed the entry on one of Godine’s newest volumes, Portraits: Artists, Architects, Writers, Composers, and Friends, which is a collection of Barry Moser’s fine engravings, exquisitely produced. A perfect holiday gift if ever there was one.
