THE GROLIER CLUB

The Grolier Club, which will continue to exhibit Boo-Hooray‘s comprehensive collection of Bardo Matrix materials in its second floor gallery through Saturday, May 24, is an ideal venue in which to examine these beautiful Nepalese vegetable paper publications from the 1970s.

A private New York club for bibliophiles founded in 1884, the Grolier’s objective has always been to provide “literary study of the arts pertaining to the production of books, including the occasional publication of books designed to illustrate, promote and encourage these arts.”

Along with activities designed and programmed specifically for its members, the Grolier Club maintains a program of public exhibitions which “treat books and prints as objects worthy of display, on a par with painting and sculpture.” Exhibitions such as Boo-Hooray’s for Bardo Matrix draw on various sources including Club holdings, the holdings of its members, and of institutional libraries.

Stop by while the exhibit continues; the Grolier Club itself is one of the small glories of New York City, for lovers of books and fine printing around the world.
