About the Exhibition

Center for Book Arts is excited to announce the exhibition Tideline Press 1972-2022 and A Long Hill Homeward, on exhibit with readings and master classes October 7 to December 10, 2022.

Leonard Seastone printed and published  TideLine Press’ first book in October 1972. A Solo in the Choir was cut in French linoleum and printed by rubbing with a small teaspoon. Now, 50 years on, Seastone’s A Long Hill Homeward is being launched at The Center For Book Arts. A book 16+ years in the works. These two books represent the book-ends of Seastone’s TideLine publications. And with a selection of other works, they represent his five decades as an artist, printer, and binder. Many books exhibited are open for handling. This exhibition displays the artist as originally self taught, his experimentation and invention, and includes his storytelling for which he is also well known.
