History of the Book: From Clay Tablets to Electronic Tablet
Kelvin Smith Library invites you to explore History of the Book: From Clay Tablets to Electronic Tablet, an exhibit highlighting the relatively new field of study that is being widely used in universities and colleges throughout the country. History of the Book is an exploration not only of the physical evolution of the book, but its development as a cultural artifact.
Curated by Robert H. Jackson, Kelvin Smith Library’s Distinguished Visiting Scholar, the exhibit includes representative books and manuscripts from the 13th through the 20th centuries from around the globe. Jackson based the exhibit on his class, The History of the Book: From Shakespeare to Kindle, offered through the Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program in fall 2012.
- On display through Friday, March 21
- KSL Hatch Reading Room (2nd floor)
- Monday – Friday: 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
For more information, contact KSLspecialcollections@case.edu.
