During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the world of book cover design was propelled into a Golden Age. With prolific artists, such as Sarah Whitman and Margaret Armstrong, women were welcomed into this field and made great contributions with their works. This semester, Simpson Library’s exhibit explores these various styles and trends in book cloth design from the mid-1800s until the early 1900s, displaying volumes from its collections and private local collections.
The exhibit was created by Jean Foster, Collections Maintenance Supervisor, Carolyn S. Parsons, Special Collections Librarian, and Lauren Holt, Special Collections Intern.
Date: March 4 – April 12, 2013
