The Global Book

The Global Book

For all our differences, people around the world and throughout history have always aspired to the same basic things. This exhibition invites viewers to consider books as one point of departure for exploring our shared global heritage.

How do books’ physical attributes reveal cross-cultural influences? Have the same creative impulses emerged in places hundreds of years and thousands of miles apart? Can juxtaposing one book with another can tell us something about each that we cannot get by looking only at one?

The exhibit features materials from the library’s Rare Book Collection, including several recent acquisitions. Questions? Contact Michael Taylor, Special Collections Librarian, at
