Visit the Special Collections exhibit: A Decade in British Columbia -- Fine and Private Presses

Ephemera from B.C. presses

About the exhibit

We are displaying a small sample of our Book Publishing and Book Arts collections, including monographs and ephemera created by fine and private presses in British Columbia throughout the 2010s, with an emphasis on on book design, typography, illustrations, covers, paper making, and paper choices. 

Featuring the work of many talented designers, printers, photographers, papermakers, bookbinders, and artists over the last decade, this exhibit highlights the attention to detail and collaboration required to create these limited editions.

After the exhibit, readers may consult these titles in the Special Collections and Rare Books reading room (Room 7100).
