Read carefully: On March 23, Norman Ives would have turned 101-years-old. On Sunday, March 24, we’ll celebrate this important designer, printer, and artist by giving away fifty copies of Norman Ives: Constructions & Reconstructions, the 312-page book by John T. Hill which chronicles the life and work of Ives. We’ll also be showing a few original artworks by Ives, as well as our own copy of his beautiful (and rare) book 8 Symbols. Come spend a Sunday afternoon with Ives’ work, maybe some of his students, and us—and get a free book thanks to the generosity of the Norman Ives Foundation.

Date and Time
Sunday, March 24 from 1 to 4p
No ticket required.

The Rules

  • Free copies of Norman Ives: Constructions & Reconstructions are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • One copy per person. If your friend wants a copy but can’t make it, that’s too bad for your friend.
  • No matter how much you think we like you, do not email, call, or show up in the days, hours, and minutes before and ask us to hold a copy of the book for you. We won’t.
  • Do not ask us to ship a copy to you. We won’t.
  • Do not ask if we will sell you a copy. If you can’t make it here for a free copy and want to buy a copy, go here.
  • Tell your friends.
  • Do not spit on anyone.
  • Have a nice time.
