Description

Exhibit: Beautiful Paper, Beautiful Books
October 1 through 31, 2012

The word “paper” is derived from the word for “papyrus”, a plant that Egyptians made paper from over 5,000 years ago. Paper can be made from just about anything. Paper became the medium to record spiritual texts, incantations, folktales, songs, documenting history, record keeping, and creating works of art. View examples of beautiful paper and beautiful books on exhibit in the Special Collections Reading Room.
