How right they are to adore you! The Song of Songs Interpreted Through Fine Printing

A new exhibition is now on view at the Haas Family Arts Library, located at 190 York Street, New Haven. 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. How right they are to adore you!
