Join us online next Tuesday (12 April) at 4 pm EST for the final event of our Winter 2022 After Hours  series -- "Kelmscott at the Special Collections Research Center"

Marieka Kaye, head of Conservation and Book Repair for the U-M Library, will present the collection of William Morris’s Kelmscott Press books held at the Special Collections Research Center. While most turn to Morris’s printing prowess with scholarly and artistic interest, we'll look at how he added soul back into the 19th-century mechanized book trade with a simplicity and elegance that we must guard with careful preservation.
