Clare Romano & John Ross' book, The Complete Printmaker (first published in 1972), has become known as the definitive textbook for university-level courses in printmaking in various forms. Their work has been widely exhibited and is included in many museum and library collections. They have also taught in many schools across the US and Europe.

The lecture will take place in the Pane Room of Alexander Library, located on the first floor, and a reception will follow the lecture. After the lecture, participants can view an exhibit of John Ross and Clare Romano's work in the first floor and lower level lobbys of Alexander Library. This exhibit will run until March 16, 2001.
