Review of Robert Seydel’s books by Hampshire alum

Ryan Mihaly, ’08F was one of the curators (along with Audrey Nefores) of the exhibit in the Hampshire Gallery, “I Make Me Up: The Work of Robert Seydel and his Pupils” that was up from September 12-29, 2014. That wonderful exhibit coincided with the opening of the Robert Seydel Reading Room in the Hampshire Library this past fall. If you click here and scroll down until you get to September, you can read about Ryan and Audrey’s exhibit.

Ryan recently wrote a review of Robert’s “Songs of S.” for The Improbable, a new online journal that describes itself as, “a highly curated, monthly collection of short reviews written by booksellers for booksellers about unusual and wondrous books that live at the intersection of art and literature.” The Improbable is produced by Siglio, the wonderful independent press in Los Angeles that published Robert’s books. The link above will get you to Ryan’s review of Songs of S as well as a review of another of Robert’s books, A Picture is Always a Book: Further Writings from Book of Ruth. Both titles are available in the Robert Seydel Reading Room. Please get in touch if you’d like to see them or need any help searching for other treasures in the reading room.
