Inspired Design: The Mentoring Stamp
August 10 through December 20, 2008

Book Arts Gallery, Neilson Library
Smith College
Northampton, MA

EXHIBIT CLOSES DECEMBER 20, 2008.  Last chance to see the set book exhibition based on Lance Hidy’s Designing the Mentoring Stamp, published by Kat Ran Press and bound by members of the New England Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers. Complemented by an exhibition of designs and progressive proofs of stamps by Lance Hidy.

The show was curated by Barbara B. Blumenthal and Barbara Adams Hebard, and has been well received by all.  Articles on the exhibit have appeared in a number of publications helping the work to reach a very wide audience.  Several books from the show have sold, adding yet another measure of a successful exhibit. 


A beautiful catalog is available from Smith College’s Mortimer Rare Book Room.
