Printer's Sample Book, American, 1870, from the Multiple Choice Exhibition, currently on view
Tonight (Tuesday March 18) at Cooper-Hewitt:
"In past centuries sample books served to record patterns and motifs used in decorative arts and were carefully guarded by manufacturers against espionage attempts from competitors. In this panel, held in conjunction with Multiple Choice: From Sample to Product. Cooper-Hewitt invites you to join intellectual property lawyer Harley Lewin, and Susan Posen, CEO of Zac Posen, in a conversation with Eric Wilson of The New York Times on how designers strive to protect their work in a knock-off culture."
The event takes place at 6: 30 Members and students with valid ID: $5; non-Members: $10.
