Secret Books!

Secret Books! Exhibit

August 28 – November 7, 2012

Many surprises lurk in the Reed library collections: books that have unexpected contents, hidden accessories or decoration, or are just downright unreadable. The long history of cyphers and steganography (concealed writing) attests to the appeal, and sometimes the necessity, of hiding meaning in communications and texts. A broader look at books— including artists’ books—containing secret surprises of any sort is currently on display in the flat library cases just beyond the entrance.

One thought on “Secret Books!”

  1. Do you have a list of the books in this exhibit? I am very interested in the subject, but I won’t be able to see the exhibit in person.
