A new exhibition in the Milberg Gallery of Princeton University's Firestone Library celebrates the founding in 1940 of a unique collection at Princeton -- one that showcases the history and arts of the book through the finest examples of printing, typography, binding, papermaking, calligraphy and illustration.
"For the Love of Books and Prints: Elmer Adler and the Graphic Arts Collection at Princeton University Library" is on display through Oct. 7. The exhibition provides fascinating glimpses of the history of the revival of fine printing in early 20th-century America and of campus life at Princeton in the 1940s.
Hours for the exhibition are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
