Hedi Kyle has been making books for over four decades. Among her accomplishments are: Co­-Founder of the Paper and Book Intensive, Professor at the Master of Fine Arts program at the University of the Arts, Conservator at the American Philosophical Society, and the popularization of many, many unconventional book structures. In complement, but not in contrast to these accomplishments, one of Hedi's great strengths is her sense of play, of possibility, and of joyful creativity.

This exhibition at San Francisco Center for the Book is a combination of new work, made by her in her studio for this show, and book objects she has created over the years that have influenced so many. It is no exaggeration to expect the experience will be a revelation.
