Member Tour - From Pen to Press

Member Tour - From Pen to Press

For members and their guests. No registration necessary.

We invite members to join Lynley Herbert, assistant curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts for an exclusive tour of From Pen to Press: Experimentation and Innovation in the Age of Print. This exhibition explores the moment of tension, beginning with Gutenberg's Bible in 1455, when printing was a new, experimental medium. The story is especially pertinent now, as we are experiencing our own technological revolution, moving from the printed book to digital publishing.
