The Book Arts Collection features selections from Special Collections relevant to historical and contemporary book arts and print culture, including binding, calligraphy, design, printing, papermaking, publishing, illustration, and typography.

The purpose of this collection is to highlight how books have been created and used over time, with particular emphasis on the book as a physical object. The examples found here provide an introduction to contemporary and historical book arts, ranging from artists’ books to fine printing and binding.
