Rare Book Week West

“This is our tenth year and we are hosting fine art presses from countries we have never seen before at CODEX: Japan, Korea, and Chile, for example, and there are over fifty new presses joining us for the first time from Mexico City to Sydney and beyond,” said Peter Koch, founder of the CODEX Foundation. “This will be the largest event we have ever hosted.”

Onsite exhibitions at this year’s CODEX fair include the Pantone Postcard exhibit, a display of a series of Pantone Postcards re-envisioned by book artists; a selection of Mexican artists’ books coupled with a talk by the cultural attach from Guadalajara; and a display of illustrator and typographer Otto Rohse’s work.

In addition to the exhibitions, a major symposium will be held on February 9-10. A ticket for that costs $250, but a four-day pass to the fair is included.

“At the CODEX symposium we will have the world famous bibliophile and essayist Alberto Manguel and the legendary curator Roberto Trujillo from Stanford University as our keynote speakers,” said Koch. “Additionally our line-up of artists is absolutely tops, including Carolee Campbell, Sam Winston, Ines von Ketelhodt, and Ken Botnick.”

“There has never been a better time for the book than the present moment and the choices are absolutely mind-expanding,” said Koch. He added, “Valentine’s Day in Berkeley is cherry blossom time and that should be enticement enough to bring out our snowbound friends from the Northern climes.”
