Keith Godard and Esther K. Smith at MoMA PS1 Book Space

Saturday, November 10 from 3–5PM, the MoMA PS1 Book Space presents book makers Keith Godard and Esther K. Smith as they read a selection of their artists' books to children of all ages.

Keith Godard and Esther K. Smith at MoMA PS1 Book Space

Artists' books for children often eschew typical traits of children's books, opening up playful and imaginative new ways for kids to engage with books. Keith Godard will read from several of his books that have no words or pictures, or consist only of noisy pages, and can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Esther K. Smith will show, tell and read from a few artists' books that she made with Dikko Faust and other artists and writers at Purgatory Pie Press.

The event is free and open to the public, no RSVP required.

Keith Godard studied in London at the London College of Printing and Graphic Art and did graduate work at Yale School of Art and Architecture. Books published include "Make Your Own Museum" (Getty Museum), "This Way That Way" (Lars Mueller Publishers), "Building Buildings" (Staten Island Children's Museum). His books have been shown at MoMA in the exhibition "Hand Signals: Digits, Fists, and Talons" and at the Center for Book Arts (NYC) exhibition "Look, Look, Look…A Playful Book."

Esther K. Smith wrote and designed "HOW TO MAKE BOOKS," "Making Books with Kids," and several other book arts books, including editing and designing the reprint of the gorgeous "Victorian Specimens of Chromatic Wood Type, Borders &c." Artistic Director at Purgatory Pie Press, she makes limited editions and artist books with letterpress printer/hand-typographer Dikko Faust and other artists and writers at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. Solo exhibitions include Metropolitan Museum of Art, Victoria & Albert Museum (London)—and MoMA, Whitney, Cooper Hewitt and many other museums collect their works.
