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

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.

This exhibition has been generously supported by Cynthia L. Alderdice, with additional support from Peter Kilpe & Jody Baller.
