December 2021

December 15th, 12-2PM in the Thompson Library, Room 150

MEDREN 5611 student-curated exhibition of materials from our Rare Books and Manuscripts Library “Gatherings: The Social, Material, and Cultural Networks of Books, 1450-1800”

In book making, a “gathering” is several leaves of paper bound into a single unit—the essential building block of the codex as an object. The varying uses of books in the world reflect this material aspect of their creation: books are fundamentally social objects that create novel methods and opportunities for gathering. This exhibition examines material features of books from the hand-press period (1450–1800) in the OSU Rare Books and Manuscripts Library for evidence of how they bring together people and ideas across boundaries of space, time, identity, and ideology.
