Tara O’Brien on Book Arts in American History: Printing, Binding, and Illustration

June 9, 2023 @ 1:00 pm EDT

Sponsored by The Caxton Club

We’re hoping that our June speaker will have enough material to draw on in order to fashion a presentation. After all, she has access to only 21 million choices.

Tara O’Brien serves as Director of Preservation & Conservation Services at Philadelphia’s Historical Society of Pennsylvania. (The library was founded more than a decade before Chicago was even incorporated as a city … and we’re behind on cheesesteak sandwiches as well.) Philadelphia has a rich tradition in print, and Tara will share superb examples of how the book arts came to life in printing, binding, and illustration.

Tara is an accomplished printmaker, teacher, and preservationist/conservationist. She’ll reveal America’s rich tradition in the book arts in a generously illustrated presentation. Much in demand as a speaker, she has lectured internationally on a range of topics.

Register today for a presentation you’re sure to Brotherly Love.
