As our world
becomes more digital, some prize bespoke printed texts of
extraordinary form and quality. Rainier Club Member, Ed Marquand, owner of
Marquand Editions, will present several of his exquisite books produced at his
studio in Tieton, Washington, outside of Yakima. There, he hires members from
the community to learn letterpress printing and binding. They combine
techniques from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries to create them.
Some of the
editions he will present are included in the collections of the Metropolitan
Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, the Vatican Library, the Art
Institute of Chicago, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Huntington
Library, the Stanford Library, the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, the
University of Washington, and many others.
