"The Tender Hour of Twilight" by Richard Seaver, interview of Jeannette Seaver, part 2
Not all bridges are built by engineers. When the young literary editor Richard Seaver returned to the United States after several seminal years in Paris, he came armed with a knowledge of new literature from France that would reshape America’s ideas about modern art. But knowledge was only a prerequisite. He brought something more important: enthusiastic advocacy. CANAPE honors Seaver upon the occasion of the publication of his posthumous memoir The Tender Hour of Twilight.

“Printing for Kingdom, Empire & Republic: Treasures From the Archives of the Imprimerie Nationale”
Established in 1884, the Grolier Club was the first organization in America to regularly exhibit books as objects of artistic and historical interest, on a par with paintings and sculpture. The club takes its name after the French Renaissance book collector Jean Grolier famous for lending books to his friends. It should be no surprise, then, that the club recently mounted the extensive exhibit Printing for Kingdom, Empire, & Republic: Treasures from the Archives of the Imprimerie Nationale curated by H. George Fletcher. CANAPE tours the paradise for Francophile bibliophiles.
