“One’s Reverses, Reverse. No?,” an exhibit of palindromes, will open on Thursday, August 1st at 7:00pm in the Community Room of the Henry Carter Hull Library in Clinton, CT. The 24 palindromes are specially chosen enlarged prints from a limited edition book of palindromes by Clinton resident, Jim Beloff, with illustrations by Scott Baldwin of Killingworth.
An opening reception with books available for purchase and signing will occur from 7:00 to 8:00 on Thursday, August 1st at the library.
Jim Beloff has been writing palindromes—sentences that read the same way forward and backward—for over 30 years. These 24 prints were chosen from his book of 44 palindromes published in 2017, entitled, One’s Reverses, Reverse. No? About the book, Will Shortz, New York Times Crossword editor said: “Some of the best illustrated palindromes I’ve seen. The palindromes make sense, and the pictures are funny!” In addition to the title of the exhibit and book, other palindromes from the exhibit will include, “Lapses? Order red roses, pal.” and “Gal, if on a familiar trail I’m a fan of, I lag.” and “Eli began a motel bible to manage bile.” All of the 11 x 17 prints will be framed, signed by the author and illustrator and for sale at the library for $40 each, with a portion of each sale benefiting the library.
The reception will occur at the library on opening day from 7:00-8:00pm. Refreshments will be served and copies of One’s Reverses, Reverse. No? will also be available for sale. For further information regarding book or purchasing art please contact Jim Beloff at email@example.com.
