Eric Gill: a Complex Spirit


Join the staff of the Center and Clark Library and friends for an evening of visual interest and a lively lecture, as we open our doors for an Exhibition and the 2nd Annual Clark Library Open House.

The exhibition, Eric Gill: a Complex Spirit, will showcase the breadth of Gill’s skills as an artist and craftsman, and explore the thematic issues that informed his work from a young age.  A lecture on Gill will be presented by Paul Soady, an Associate Adjunct Professor at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.  Soady has been working extensively on a book inspired by Gill’s typeface, Perpetua, and the book will make its debut at this event.

Here is a look at the small edition of letterpress invitations Paul and Jennifer made for a mailing prior to the event.
