Now available for purchase, seven water fountains by Ed Steck! 

seven water fountains is a special edition, created on the occasion of Ed Steck’s exhibition and publication, sleep as information/the fountain is a water feature, from Center for Ongoing Research and Projects. The exhibition included a series of screen prints and artist books, including seven water fountains: a hand-bound artist book, quarter-bound in cloth with screen-printed wraps, and fully screen-printed pages featuring a collection of textured marginalia from water fountain patents interspersed with a poem of the same title. 

seven water fountains was printed by New Academy Press in Pittsburgh, PA, on occasion of sleep as information/the fountain is a water feature exhibition and publication by Center for Ongoing Research and Projects in an edition of five. 

Funding for seven water fountains and sleep as information/the fountain is a water feature was provided by the Robert C. Smith Fund and the Betsy R. Clark Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation. 

The author has generously provided copies of this very special edition to help raise much-needed funds for UDP’s productions.

Happy 5th Birthday, Greenlight!

Congratulations to Greenlight Bookstore, Brooklyn, N.Y., which is celebrating its fifth anniversary on Saturday, October 18. At 11 a.m., a birthday party for kids and families will feature a birthday story time, with refreshments, activities, party favors and presentations by some of the store’s favorite authors. Children’s book author/illustrators Selina Alko (B Is for Brooklyn, I’m Your Peanut Butter Big Brother) and Elisha Cooper (Train, Farm) will present their picture books along with some new art they’ve created for the occasion. At 7:30 p.m. is the more adult party, featuring “oceans of prosecco, great music, door prizes, announcements and toasts, and perhaps a few surprises.” As the store put it: “It’s Greenlight’s chance to express our enormous appreciation for our customers and our community, and celebrate five years of togetherness with our neighborhood and our literary world!” (via Shelf Awareness for Monday, October 6, 2014 | Shelf Awareness)

Happy happy birthday, greenlightbklyn!
