The Poets House Showcase 25th Anniversary Celebration: A Pop-Up Show

Jul 27, 2017 | 12:00 am - Sep 16, 2017 | 12:00 am

On View July 27 – September 16

On the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Poets House Showcase, we have selected a sampling of the special, limited-edition items that have been shown over the years. This pop-up show features handmade books created by micropresses, fine editions, and other distinctive items displaying unique formats or unusual bindings. Together, these materials illustrate the ongoing relevance of the printed format and the handmade book, where text, image, and format can come together to be more than the sum of their parts. We hope you’ll experience this exhibition as a window into some of the secrets of the 70,000-volume Poets House Library, where surprises and treasures can be found on almost any shelf.
