Beckett at Princeton
TP's lithograph of Samuel Beckett joins him at Princeton this autumn. TP is a visitor at the Institute for Advanced Study whilst the litho is included in an exhibition at the Princeton University Library to mark the acquisition of the Leonard L. Milberg ‘53 Collection of Irish Theater. The exhibition features approximately 220 items from the collection, including first and significant editions of the playwrights’ published scripts, broadsides, manuscripts, playbills and posters. The exhibition, Players & Painted Stage: The Leonard L. Milberg Collection of Irish Theater, opens Friday, 13 October 2006, and will remain on view in both the Main and Milberg Galleries of Firestone Library through 22 April 2007. Follow this link to see other highlights of the exhibition.

i went today to the university library to see the
exhibition.my image of beckett stares [so to speak since we are looking at the back of his head] at you as you come in.but itis not the lithograph but a poster version of it done by the national portrait gallery.perfectly ok though and flatteringly placed.also in the same show is
the folio society version of waiting for godot. bewileringly this id open at the same image. i wish they had shown the cover which of all the bookjackets ive done is my favourite.
