Special Collections Research Center Celebrates Book Arts During Octavo fest
Octavo fest is underway in Cleveland with a month long celebration of Northeast Ohio’s book and paper treasures. Museums, libraries, printers, bookbinders and many others who care about and promote book and paper arts have coordinated this rich series of events.
The Special Collections Research Center’s contribution to octavo fest will be a part of a larger University Circle centered event called “An Afternoon/Evening at University Circle.” On Wednesday, October 20th, from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm, Jamye Jamison, Associate Paper Conservator, ICA, will present “Care and Handling of Paper Based Materials” Kelvin Smith Library’s Dampeer Room. From 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm there will be an exhibit in Special Collections “Significant items from Special Collections” and a tour of the Preservation Department.
