      Oak Knoll Fest XII

      October 1 & 2, 2005!

      Come join us

      The theme of Oak Knoll Fest Twelve is "The Private Press and Leaf Books, a
      Noble Tradition?" Joel Silver, Curator of Books at the Lilly Library and
      recent contributor to the Caxton Club's Disbound and Dispersed, the Leaf
      Book Considered will speak on Saturday morning at 10am giving us a history
      of the leaf book with a glimpse as to why the private press world was chosen
      to do them. We will have a panel discussion on Sunday at 10am which will
      consider the practical and ethical side of the leaf book. Joel Silver will
      moderate the panel which will be composed of John Randle of the Whittington
      Press, Michael Thompson, President of the Caxton Club and an attorney with a
      special interest in the ethical side of leaf books, Jerry Kelly of
      Kelly-Winterton Press and James Birchfield, Curator of Rare Books at the
      University of Kentucky.
