Jack Sprague’s BIG BOOK SALE

And Scholarship Fundraiser

Hi, students and alumni alike,

As you know this is my final semester at UNT and I am preparing to vacate my office for Eric to move in late May. All of you students who have worked with me over the years know that I have an extensive collection of almost 300 great books ranging in content from Typography, Graphic Design, Advertising and Photography to Publication, Environmental, Packaging and Illustration along with a miscellaneous collection of other unique books and magazines.

Rather than haul several hundred pounds of books with me to Santa Fe, NM, I have decided to offer my collection to the faculty and students and have a big book sale on Wednesday May 12th beginning at 11:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. in the atrium between the light well and the main gallery.

This sale will give each of you the opportunity to get you hands on some really great books and help me raise funds for my student scholarship as I have decided to donate 100% of the funds of this book sale to the Jack Sprague Scholarship. Not only will you be helping yourself with your education, you will be helping yourself and others in our program in supporting my scholarship fund with your purchase.

The book sale will be cash only, no checks or credit cards. The vast majority of these books will be sold for $10.00 each. A few of the more rare and expensive large format design and advertising books will sell for $20.00 each. The wide range of Archive, Print and Communication Arts magazines will sell for $2.00 each.

My goal is to sell off everything in four hours and not need to pack anything. So, the first buyers with cash in hand to arrive, the first to get your hands on the best books. Please get there early, bring cash only, preferably $5 and $10 denominations so we will not need to manage a lot of change.

Help yourself and help my scholarship. A win-win for everyone! It is possible that one of you will receive the first Jack Sprague Scholarship.

See you on May 12th at 11:00 a.m.
