If you haven’t had a chance to check out the exhibition 50 Books 50 Covers yet, you definitely should! There’s some great design work shown. It’s in the J. Willard Marriot Library, 4th floor, just outside the Book Arts Studio. The reception for this exhibition is on September 8th (this Thursday) from 5:30-9:30 p.m.

Also after the reception there’s free screening of Proceed & Be Bold in the Gould Auditorium, J. Willard Marriot Library, 1st floor. This starts at 7:00 p.m.

From AIGA SLC website:

Proceed and Be Bold! documents the story of Amos Paul Kennedy Jr., who discovered letterpress printing on a visit to Colonial Williamsburg. Immediately hooked, he returned home to set up a small print shop in his basement. Kennedy’s provocative work, humor, and lifestyle question the premises of the contemporary art world, as well as widely held assumptions about what constitutes success.
