On September 16, at 5 PM PST on Zoom, the fifth lecture in the Alcuin Society Virtual Lecture Series 2021, two old friends talk about their craft and their shared passion for making books, in a talk called Two Fellas Talking Shop.

Gaspereau Press’s Andrew Steeves and wood engraver Wesley Bates have been friends and collaborators for nearly a quarter century. Wesley’s mirthful, masterly illustrations have been used in Gaspereau Press books more often than the work of any other artist. This informal conversation will explore the work that Steeves and Bates have done together and discuss the nature of the collaborative process. Learn more about this talk.

The event was recorded and uploaded to the Alcuin Society YouTube channel:
