Jack’s Big Book Sale

And Scholarship Fundraiser

Hi, students and alumni alike,

This is a reminder of Jack’s big book sale on Wednesday, May 12th from 11:00 am–3:00 pm in the atrium between the Light Well and the UNT Art Gallery. 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.

As you know, this is Jack’s final semester at UNT and he is preparing to vacate his office for Eric to move in in late May. All of you students and alumni who have worked with Jack over the years know that he has 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.

This sale will give each of you the opportunity to get you hands on some really great books and help him raise funds for my student scholarship as he has 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 his scholarship fund with your purchase.

His 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 he will not need to manage a lot of change.

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

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