From the Friends of the Wesleyan Library:
Kyle Schlesinger, Director of Cuneiform Press, discusses the state of the book in our current cultural climate, while sharing his passion for producing enduring works that merge historically-informed typographic practices with the latest industry trends. From letterpress-printed chapbooks to collaborations with writers and artists such as Johanna Drucker, Bill Berkson, and Jim Dine, Cuneiform publishes poetry, artists’ books, and nonfiction with an emphasis on enriching the humanities. Works will be on display in both the Develin Room and the Olin Lobby, including posters from Schlesinger’s recent social-movement letterpress project, A People’s Curriculum for the United States.
