I recently finished designing the postcard and exhibit poster for K 180: Celebrating Kalamazoo College’s 180th Birthday. It features gems from the A.M. Todd Rare Book Room collection. The exhibit runs from April 1 – June 13, 2013, at Kalamazoo College, and is closed between May 8 – May 19. The exhibit will be featured in three Art Hops sponsored by the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo. Art Hop occurs the first Friday of the month in downtown Kalamazoo, and this exhibit shows in April, May and June.
The artwork I chose to feature on the publicity materials is from an illuminated manuscript copy of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven,” which was a birthday gift in 1920 to Albert May Todd from his wife Augusta. As usual, I photographed the artwork using a Canon EOS Rebel T2i.
