From Pen to Press: Experimentation and Innovation in the Age of Print

Date: Saturday, November 22, 2014–Sunday, April 12, 2015

This exhibition explores that moment of tension, beginning with the publication of Gutenberg’s Bible in 1455, when printing was a new, experimental medium. The result was a fascinating interplay of formats that led to hybrid works, failed experiments, and entirely new forms of books. This story is especially pertinent now, as we are experiencing our own technological revolution, moving from printed book to digital publishing.
