Stop by the Theta Rho room outside Archives & Special Collections to see our latest exhibition: The Art of Illustrating the Book. You’ll see a selection of some interesting items from our collections that trace the development of illustration methods from the Middle Ages to the present. The exhibition also features a selection of local artist Dirk Lee’s wood engravings and some of the most visually-interesting zines from our extensive small press collection.Items on display include the 1561 Stow edition of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, one of the portfolio photogravure images from Edward Curtis’ North American Indian, works by Arthur Rackham and Maurice Sendak, and much more.
The Art of Illustrating the Book will be on view through June. For more information contact Archives & Special Collections at 406.243.2053 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
