Inaugural Focus on the Book featuring Eric Holzenberg, Director of the Grolier Club
In this age of e-books and e-readers, the word “book” has taken on new meanings. Yet the book in its printed form endures and is highly sought after by the general public, libraries, and book collectors. This lecture series has been created to celebrate the book in print, its form, function, and beauty, its historical importance and lasting nature. Come celebrate with us a “technology” that has been around since Johannes Gutenberg.
