Bound for Beauty

The Bound for Beauty digital exhibition is a companion to the onsite exhibition of the same name. The exhibition explores the most beautiful books in the University Libraries’ collections—both miniature and average size—and the decorative techniques used to produce such beauty.

Six books of various sizes displayed spine-in so that the gold edges and the geometrical designs etched into them are on display.

This exhibition was organized by the Curator of Rare Books Cassie Brand for Washington University Libraries.
