Dante Comes to FDU!

Celebrate Dante’s 750th birthday!

How did Dante Alighieri, 14th-century author of The Divine Comedy, come to inspire the 21st-century art work of artist and Professor George Cochrane?  The artist’s book, its current printing by centuries-old techniques, and why Dante matters today, will be the focus of the “Dante Comes to FDU” program.  Prof. Cochrane, Prof. Gloria Pastorino, and Luke Ives Pontifell, publisher and president of Thornwillow Press, will trace book and art history from early handmade books to printing and illustration to the comic and cartooning arts.
