Hands-On Tour at the Rosenbach Museum and Library: Book Arts

Date/Time

Jul 26, 2019
03:00 PM

Description

  Do you prefer to judge a book by its cover, or does the inside matter more? In this tour of book arts, we’ll take a look at various rare books in The Rosenbach collection, their aesthetics, their functions, how the processes in creating books inform how we use them today, and vice versa. Go behind the scenes of book binding, illuminating medieval manuscript leaves, the artistry of scribes and painters, 19th century printmaking – and perhaps stumble on a few surprises between the pages. Hands-On Tours allow you unparalleled access to rare and important items that are not usually on view to the public. Space is limited and advance registration is strongly recommended.
