"Almost at 100": Gunnar A. Kaldewey & His Press

Poster from Bromer Booksellers & Gallery will spend the summer of 2023 awash in rays of color. On June 8th, the Gallery will host the exhibition of Gunnar A. Kaldewey’s pivotal book art, in a show aptly titled, “Almost at 100” to commemorate the nearly 100 artist’s books published under Kaldewey’s guiding hand. Dozens of those artist’s books, each one experimental in its material and global in its content, will be on display alongside watercolors and proof prints demonstrating Kaldewey’s artistic process. His books manifest, in paper and shape and illustration, the texts of some of the most notable authors from around the world: Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Jorge Luis Borges, Pablo Neruda, Saigyo, and Ikkyu, among many others. The exhibition positions Kaldewey as a pivotal figure in the rise of contemporary book arts, his knack for collaboration and craftsmanship a herald for the next generation of printers, designers, and book-makers.

“Almost at 100” will be on exhibit at Bromer Gallery, 607 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02116, from June 8th to December 8th, 2023, and can be viewed in person in the gallery or digitally encountered on There will be an opening reception on June 8th from 5:00-7:00pm, when Kaldewey will be in the gallery to discuss his work.
