SeriesSpecial Collections After Hours

The stars of the pop up world aren’t household names, but there are some heavy hitters in the Special Collections Research Center! Discover what makes each artist’s work tick as you explore some stellar books from our collection.

There’s a prize awarded every other year by the Moveable Book Society for the best pop up book. It’s called the Meggendorfer Award for Best Paper Engineering, and we have many of these at the library. We’ll have a selection of prize winners and more on display, along with expert paper conservator, Amy Crist, to help us see how these marvels work. Librarian for Art & Design and curator of the Book Arts, Jamie Vander Broek, will also join to talk about what makes these books special. Join us in room 660 on the 6th floor of the Hatcher Library.

Take advantage of our monthly Special Collections After Hours events to explore a sliver of the many books, documents, and artifacts in the Special Collections Research Center.
