Visual Poetry Exhibition at The Book Club of California

June 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm PDT

Sponsored by The Book Club of California

June 20, 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM Los Angeles time | In-Person exhibition opening and Livestream on Zoom

Poets, scribes, and printers throughout history have taken advantage of the fact that poetry is both a visual and a verbal art. From the collection of the Book Club of California, this exhibit looks at some of these multi-sensory works from the earliest known shaped poems, over twenty-three thousand years old, up to modern experiments in textual design.

Exhibition Opening with remarks by Elizabeth Newsom, librarian, Book Club of California
