About the Exhibition
Mary Helen Johns (A&S ’16) and librarian Sara Sterkenburg install manuscripts and artists’ books for a library exhibition in collaboration with an undergraduate class. Students from Professor Elizabeth Moodey’s History of Art 2288: Art of the Book class curated this exhibition, connecting medieval manuscripts with contemporary artists’ books to explore links between these unique books.
