Bonnie Cashin Lecture
This week I received page proofs for the Bonnie Cashin lecture, delivered last year at UCLA Library. Bonnie Cashin was a fashion designer, and the booklet's title is Always in Fashion? Carey McWilliams, California Radicalism, and the Politics of Cool. Gary Strong, University Librarian at UCLA, got Kevin Starr to write the preface. Both men are former California state librarians. Kevin also figures--somewhat surrealistically--in the lecture itself.
Patrick Reagh, the book designer and letterpress printer in Sebastopol, did a great job on the cover and interior. Pat will print 1,000 copies, which the library will distribute.
