Is a picture really worth a thousand words?

From woodcut to lithograph, this exhibition explores the history and methods of book illustration, and sheds light on the important role that co-existent images and text play in the transfer and retention of meaningful knowledge.

Visit Level 1 of the Library where you can learn more about these centuries-old techniques and view some of the finest illustrated books Special Collections has to offer.

On display during Barr Smith Library opening hours until 27 September 2019 date.
