Wellesley, MA: (Wellesley College, 2009). Poster commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Margaret Clapp Library at Wellesley College. The poster was commissioned for the library after Special Collections Librarian Ruth Rogers met Lance Hidy at a Boston meeting of the Society of Printers. The image, rendered in lineless areas of soft color, shows a student reading in a comfy chair in front of large windows showing a peaceful lakeside forest. Hidy is best known for his poster designs, including posters for other libraries, such as the Boston Public Library and Yale's Sterling Memorial Library; he has also designed stamps and typefaces and worked with artists and designers, like David Godine and Ansel Adams. He is currently a faculty member at Northern Essex Community College. This copy of the poster is inscribed by the artist to Anne and David Bromer and dated November 2009. Rolled. Fine. Item #27530
