Closing Soon: Fine Press Books Exhibition

Don’t miss seeing From Golden Type to Double Gilt: Fine Press Books at Vanderbilt Libraries, which runs through August 28, 2022, in Vanderbilt’s Special Collections and University Archives Library on the second floor of Central. The libraries’ collection of fine binding was formed from a gift in memory of Nettie Hale Rand by her husband, Frank Rand. The libraries continue to add to the collection, which reflects the range of fine work in leather tooling, gilding, and Cosway binding.  Selections include beautifully handbound books by artist William Morris from his Kelmscott Press in Hammersmith, London. The exhibition, co-curated by one of the libraries’ Buchanan Library Fellows, is sure to inspire.
