THE FIRST OF ITS KIND ON THE WEST COAST
The San Francisco Center for the Book was co-founded by Mary Austin and Kathleen Burch, who recognized a growing need in San Francisco, the Bay Area and on the West Coast for a facility specifically designed and equipped to support the appreciation, teaching and creation of book arts. The first center of its kind on the West Coast, San Francisco Center for the Arts was incorporated in March of 1996 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
THE GRAND OPENING
The grand opening celebration on July 30, 1996, of the first location of San Francisco Center for the Book, on DeHaro Street between 16th and 17th Streets, along an old railroad line in the Potrero Hill District, attracted an overflow crowd of more than 400 people. That first season, consisted of 64 students and a dozen classes.
By 2002, with the renaissance of book arts picking up steam, San Francisco Center for the Book moved to the north end of the same building, to larger accomodations that included a view of an old railcar nextdoor, to house an ever growing collection of bookbinding and letterpress equipment, tools and type. To meet public demand, this move also provided space for more and larger workshops.
ACROSS THE TRACKS
In early 2013, the San Francisco Center for the Book moved to a 7,000 square foot space just around the corner and across what used to be railroad tracks, to the Rhode Island Street side of the same block, in what is now known as the Do.Re.Mi (DOgpatch-PotREro-Hill-MIssion) Design and Arts District, surrounded on all sides by galleries, art studios and other arts organizationsin a hub of art and design studios, galleries and technology firms. The move to the larger space space allowed San Francisco Center for the Book to expand to include an exhibition gallery sitting aside the print studio, a platemaking lab, a separate bindery, arts and crafts room, and administrative offices.
Currently, San Francisco Center for the Book offers over 400 workshops and and serves thousands of students of all ages each year. In addition to our workshops, San Francisco Center for the Book also presents exhibitions and events, hosts special visits and hands-on demonstrations, and much more.

The Aesthetic Union began as a desire for collaboration. Printing has long been the process where designer and artist come together to duplicate their work. But printmaking is a craft that requires years of dedication to master. When an artist and designer collaborate with a Master Printer, a new type of artwork is created. The image is altered from the process. From the artist’s hand, to printing plates, to the press, and then finally, the pressman’s eye, the final product is an entirely different specimen. It’s been transformed through the alchemical processes of a craft that’s been around for centuries.
Our goal is not only to show people the process, but educate; printing is essential to the form that they hold in their hands.
From custom-designed business cards, limited edition posters, packaging, etc, we love collaborating with people who have amazing ideas or designs. The union in Aesthetic Union is about our relationship with you.
You are who we are printing and designing for.
The Aesthetic Union is you and I.

With a background in law, non-profit arts administration and art dealing, Todd Hosfelt opened his gallery in San Francisco in 1996. Former museum curator and current partner Dianne Dec joined the gallery in 1997. In 2012, Hosfelt expanded and relocated to a 9,000 sq. ft. former door factory in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood, forming the nucleus of the new DoReMi arts district.
Hosfelt Gallery's program is built around artwork with a refined level of execution that offers new perspectives on critical discourses in contemporary art, culture, and politics. We represent an international roster of emerging to established artists whose work is grounded in a broad understanding of history — visual, cultural, political and social. Their idiosyncratic synthesis of knowledge and skill results in artworks that allude to tradition while incorporating new ideas, materials and methods.
