The San Francisco Bay Area has been fortunate to host several events highlighting the notable work of Italy’s prestigious publishing house, Tallone Fine Print Books. January 31 through February 11, 2017, San Francisco State University’s Frank V. de Bellis Collection, in collaboration with the San Francisco Italian Consulate General and the Italian Cultural Institute, presented a mini-exhibit of Tallone Fine Print Books at the J.
