The David Lance Goines Note Card Collection : Movies

Available August 2020

For fifty years, artist, calligrapher, and printmaker David Lance Goines has been the creator of the inimitable designs that have come to define the Bay Area and its institutions. With stark lines, soft colors, and stunning text, his designs are immediately striking and effective, whether depicting an historic local restaurant or an internationally beloved film. While these designs are iconic and immediately recognizable to most, their timeless aesthetic is appealing to both the newcomer and the longtime fan.

Artist and writer David Lance Goines was born May 29, 1945 in Grants Pass, Oregon, and is the oldest of eight children. His father, Warren Charles Goines (1921-2002) was a civil engineer. His mother, Wanda Burch Goines (1923 - 2016) was an accomplished artist and calligrapher. He attended the University of California at Berkeley as a Classics major, but in his second year was expelled as a consequence of his participation in the Free Speech Movement. In 1965 he apprenticed with a Berkeley lithographer, becoming in the fullness of time a journeyman of that Art and Mystery. In 1968 he founded Saint Hieronymus Press in the same Berkeley printshop where he had learned his trade. There he has remained, designing his work and printing it by both letterpress and photo-offset lithography.
