In Focus

Illustration from The Song of Songs (Book Club of California, 1922)

Exhibition on view September 28, 2015 – February 19, 2016

The Song of Songs, also known as the Song of Solomon or Canticles, is a book of the Bible that is more lyrical than other parts of the Bible, containing poems about love.  For over a century, modern fine printers have been inspired by these expressions of joy and pain, producing beautiful editions that celebrate this classical text through a high level of craft, deluxe materials, illustration, and typography.  This exhibition shows examples from Arts Library Special Collections and the Divinity Library that demonstrate a range of approaches in design, printing, and illustration.

CAA Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts

Part of each of the orientation sessions we conduct in the Arts Library touches on finding images, but what happens when you want to use an image you've found? Published in February of this year, the College Art Association's Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts is an essential resource for those who make use of images in scholarly and creative work.
