      The Wells College Book Arts Center is pleased to announce that
      Tatiana Ginsberg will present the 24th
      Susan Garretson Swartzburg '60 Memorial Book Arts Lecture.

      Ms. Ginsberg=92s presentation, entitled 'Forbidden Colors: Secrets of
      Japanese Naturally Dyed Papers,' will address the traditional process
      of papermaking in Japan, and the extraction and preparation of colors
      from plants and other natural materials. In Japan, the arts of
      papermaking and dyeing with plants have been linked for over a
      millennium. Paper was introduced along with Buddhism, and papers made
      in Japan were dyed for sutra copying and collections of poetry. The
      range of colors, from subtle to vibrant, offers a rich,
      environmentally friendly spectrum little used by Western
      papermakers and artists.

      Tatiana Ginsberg had always loved paper and books. After working in
      book publishing for seven years--five of them at the Metropolitan
      Museum of Art--she yielded to the itch to go west and study
      eastern papermaking. She spent two years at the University of Iowa
      Center for the Book, studying papermaking and book arts, after which
      she received a Fulbright research grant to investigate naturally
      dyed Japanese papers in Japan. She continues to work with the
      papermaking and dyeing techniques she learned in Japan while pursuing
      an MFA at UC Santa Barbara.

      The event is free and open to the public. A reception at the Book Arts
      Center in Morgan Hall will follow the lecture, offering attendees the
      opportunity to meet the speaker. For more information about this
      event, please contact the Wells Book Arts Center by phone at
