      We recently heard from Jimi Jones (jijones@...) at the
      University of Utah, who was kind enough to send along their summer
      program. I thought some of you might be interested, so I'm posting his
      message here:

      My name is Jimi Jones and I work with the Book Arts Program at the
      University of Utah. I got an email regarding your upcoming book arts
      website. I was wondering if you would like to list us as a teaching
      resource. We teach classes for the university as well as workshops for
      the community at large and local educators (K through 12). Do you have
      space to list our workshops or exhibitions?

      I'll go ahead and attach the first half of our 2003 calendar of
      workshops, exhibitions, and classes to this email. If you would like,
      please feel free to print any of the information on your site.

      Sincerely,

      LECTURE
      Dard Hunter: A Biography on Paper
      May 8th,Thursday, 7:00

      Cathleen Baker focuses on the books written, designed, and produced by
      Dard Hunter. Hunter's name is most often associated with the history and
      technology of hand papermaking worldwide. He was also well respected for
      his work with metal, wood, and stained glass. Initially drawn to the
      avant-garde, by 1912 Hunter was firmly rooted in the early period of
      printed books as he studied and then practiced the craft of bookmaking
      by hand. He is credited with being the first person to make a book
      almost entirely by his own hand cutting punches, casting his own font
      of type, making the paper, and printing the text. Hunter's legacy is an
      important and fascinating facet of the history of the book. Baker was a
      paper conservator for more than twenty-five years, working with
      Courtauld Institute Galleries in London. She is author of By His Own
      Labor: The Biography of Dard Hunter and currently teaches at the
      University of Alabama's Book Arts Program.

      Printing on a Stanhope Handpress
      May 11th through May 18th, Sunday through Sunday

      Study the five-hundred-year-old art of letterpress printing in Italy,
      where some of Europe's earliest and best printers worked. Cosponsored by
      the Book Arts Program, this intensive workshop offers the opportunity to
      work with one of the world's premier fine press printers. Alessandro
      Zanella leads six participants through the exacting principles of
      handpress printing. Participants work at Zanella's studio in Verona on
      an 1854 Stanhope handpress to produce a twelve-page pamphlet. Each piece
      is handset and printed on dampened handmade paper, then sewn into
      wrappers. One day is devoted to visiting libraries and other private
      presses in Verona. Zanella trained with Gabriel Rummonds for six years
      before opening his own press in 1982. Since then, he has published
      seventeen Ampersand imprints and many commissioned works. His books were
      exhibited in 2001 at venues across the western United States.

      continue the exploration of letterpress by creating their program of
      study at a more advanced level. At the end of the semester, each student
      leaves with a class portfolio. The class includes a brief introduction

      COSPONSORED LECTURE
      A Brief History of the Alphabet
      June 26, Thursday, 7:00

      The Book Arts Program and the Utah Center for the Book present the
      fourth annual History of the Book lecture. Join award-winning book
      designer and editor Richard Firmage for "A Brief History of the
      Alphabet." In his book The Alphabet Abecedarium, Firmage quotes sources
      as diverse as James Joyce, Mark Twain, Bob Dylan, and Elmer Fudd to
      explore the history of the Roman alphabet and how it has influenced
      western civilization. Drawing from mythology, cosmology, history,
      literature, the esoteric, and the commonplace, Firmage discusses how
      each letter's shape evolved and how these twenty-six alphabetic signs
      are building blocks of consciousness. The development of letterforms is
      an integral part of the history of the book, represented in some of the
      most beautiful and important books of the ages from handwritten,
      illuminated productions such as the Book of Kells to printed works
      including the Gutenberg Bible and the Kelmscott Chaucer. These and other
      books on display from the Marriott Library's rare book collections
      provide magnificent examples of the alphabet in all its glory. Lectures
      are free and open to the public.
