Rare Book & Manuscript Library Events

This exhibition highlights creations by selected book artists and presses from the Rare Book & Manuscript Library collections: Loujon Press, Bea Nettles, Flying Fish Press, Amos Paul Kennedy Jr, Rusell Maret, and Jana Sim.

The works on display range from the 1960s to the present, and feature many variations on alphabets, typeface and calligraphy, colors and photography, and structures, from seemingly simple business cards, tarot cards, posters and broadsides, to complex codex, accordions, Möbius strips and Jacob’s ladders.
