Book Artist Didier Mutel

A Conversation with Contemporary Book Artist Didier Mutel
Thursday, September 24, 2009, 4:00 pm
Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, 121 Wall Street
Free and open to the public

Didier Mutel, artist, author, and bookmaker, has been experimenting with graphic modes of storytelling for the past two decades. Working in one of the last surviving 18th-century printers' ateliers in Paris, Mutel uses old methods and new technologies to re-envision classic texts.

The Beinecke Library and the Special Collections of the Haas Family Arts Library hold a selection of his book works, including his latest opus, the multi-part "The Out Side", in which Guy de Maupassant's classic science fiction tale "Horla" is explored facet by facet - creating a work of art and printing finesse.

Mutel will discuss his work techniques and his inspiration in a conversation with Beinecke curator, Timothy Young.
