Big and Small, Books for All.

Through Saturday, March 24, 2018

Community History Parkway District

This family-oriented exhibition features extraordinary books selected for their extreme sizes and unusual shapes. Visitors of all ages can interact with special artifacts and explore ideas of the form, function, and meaning of the book as a physical object. Hundreds of items will be on display, including a 4,000-year-old Sumerian tablet that is smaller than a bar of soap, a handwritten medieval music book taller than a toddler, an Armenian prayer scroll longer than an alligator, and tiny books barely the size of a pencil eraser.
