How do books’ physical attributes reveal cross-cultural influences? Have the similar creative impulses emerged in places hundreds of years and thousands of miles apart? Can juxtaposing one book with another tell us something about each that we cannot get by looking at just one? A new exhibition in Western Libraries Special Collections (Wilson Library 6th Floor) invites viewers to consider books as one point of departure for exploring our shared global heritage. On display through the end of August, the exhibition features a colorful selection of materials from various world cultures and historical time periods. This exhibition is free and open to the public. Class visits can also be arranged by contacting Michael.Taylor@wwu.edu.
