Bodies, Botanicals and Bindings: Reimagining Rare Books

Bodies, Botanicals and Bindings: Reimagining Rare Books Image
Featuring the work of artists and creative writers inspired by the University Archives rare book collections, this unique exhibition uses some of the Universitys extensive special collections to explore the history and materiality of rare books as well as the creativity they can inspire.From bindings to bookplates and end pieces to annotations, books tell stories, reminding us of the lives of their owners as much as changes in communication and technology. Taking inspiration from these remarkable collections which date from the 15th century onwards, artists and writers have created their own pieces of work which are exhibited for the first time here.On display will be jewellery, etchings, drawings, textiles, ceramics and much more, all inspired by the wonderful illustrations and content within the books or simply by the way they are put together.
