Coffee with the Curators | Openings: Title Pages in the History of Printed Books

Come celebrate a new exhibit, Openings: Title Pages in the History of Printed Books! Join us this Wednesday, 8 March 4-5.30 pm for refreshments, viewing the exhibit, and casual conversation with the student curators! We'll be in the Special Collections Research Center (room 660) on the 6th floor of the Hatcher Library.

The exhibit explores the creativity and utility of an essential part of practically every modern book, the title page. Such pages signal and inform, incite pleasure and intrigue, as well as conceal and mislead. The works shown from the holdings of the University of Michigan Library illuminate critical moments in the history of books. Students in a Fall 2022 History Lab class researched and created the exhibit. 

We hope to see you there!
