New exhibit: Eccentric Books

Eccentric Books:  At the Fore-Edge

July 30 – September 30, 2010

Colors, movement, shapes, objects, popups—the brilliant world of eccentric books is on display in the library’s flat and wall cases.  Cleverly constructed and totally entertaining book structures mingle with objects that are debatable as to whether they are books.  Taken largely from the gathering of artists’ books within special collections, examples span the last two decades and include works by American book artists, Reed students, and others.
