Faculty member Harry Reese’s work in Mexico City exhibition

The exhibition is comprised of a collection of original hand-made
volumes printed in California and drawn from the collections of Stanford
University Library and an equal number of artist’s books made by Mexican
artists and printers will be included to make this a ground-breaking
cross-border collaboration.

A catalogue will be issued in conjunction with the joint Stanford
University Library / CODEX Mexico Exhibition titled Libros de Artista, with
texts by Peter Rutledge Koch, printer and president of The CODEX Foundation;
Robert Bringhurst, poet and erudite historian of printing, and the renowned
Mexican writer Pedro Angel Palou. Copies may be obtained from the CODEX
