The Scribner Library’s Department of Special Collections contains many rare and unique books related to modern art and design. Many of these books were printed in very limited editions and contain original prints.
The exhibition features a mix of art books and illustrated books such as Sonia Delaunay’s Ses Peintures, Ses Objets, Ses Tissus Simultanés, Ses Modes, Karl Blossfeldt’s Urformen der Kunst, Richard Wilbur's A Bestiary with illustrations by Alexander Calder, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Drawings for a Living Architecture, and Man Ray’s Alphabet for Adults. Also included are several issues of Verve magazine, a quarterly review of arts and letters published from 1937 - 1960.
Exhibited curated by Yvette Cortes, Fine Arts Librarian
The exhibit will be on display in the Harris Lobby in the Scribner Library through March 26th.
