Reports from our researchers

Recently we heard from Erin Valentine, CWRU graduate student and Special Collections patron, about her work with our 19th century Japanese prints

"This semester I am taking a class in Multimedia, and our last project
required us to scan images from a number of books and combine them into a collage. I was interested in older books, and so emailed Sue Hanson in Special Collections to see what we had in the Case collection.

As it turns out, we have a lot of amazing old books about Japanese culture written around the turn of the century. I ended up getting even better images than I expected, and enjoying the project even more than if I'd used books from circulating collections."

Erin kindly sent images of her work and her artist's statement which we share here:
