This Thursday: Artists' Books Among the Shelves

The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, by Emily Martin (Special Collections General and Rare N 7433.4 .M364 T73 2012)

Join curator Juli McLoone this Thursday 18 November 7-8 pm EST for Artists' Books Among the Shelves a walk through our Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) collections through the lens of artists' books. 

The SCRC collects artists' books, but does not have an artists' book collection. Instead, artists' books may be found spread throughout the collections and topical collecting areas of SCRC, from artists' books that play with the genre of children’s alphabet books to Emily Martin’s three-dimensional Shakespeare adaptations, to works like The Diabolical Evolution of the Chicken by Laura Ladendorf that engage with our culinary past and present.
