Collaborations: Enid Mark and the Poets of the ELM Press

 

A Celebration of the extraordinary collaborative work of Enid Epstein Mark ’54, artist and proprietor of the ELM Press, featuring poets Eleanor Wilner, Celia Gilbert ’54, Susan Snively, and Annie Boutelle, who will read their contributions to Ars Botanica, published by ELM press this year, and also Enid Mark herself, interviewed by Martin Antonetti about her collaboration with writers, printers, binders, and type foundries. ELM Press books are renowned for their seamless fusion of finely printed text and Mark’s seductive lithographs. A reception in the Book Arts Gallery will follow the poetry reading and interview.

Presented by the Friends of the Smith College Libraries and the Mortimer Rare Book Room
