Exhibition: New Again: Selections from the Rare Book Vault

The Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library holds a large collection of contemporary fine printing and artists’ books. Hundreds of years separate the creation of the oldest books and these newer ones, yet they have a great deal in common. Contemporary book makers often choose methods of production quite similar to those used by the earliest book printers, though the aesthetics may have changed.

New Again: Selections from the Rare Book Vault displays books from the Hargrett Library’s Private Press Collection alongside examples from our historic holdings, revealing some of the similarities and differences. 

Friday, August 27, 2021 from 8:00am to 5:00pm
