Book Arts Exhibit with Books from the WVRHC Rare Books Collection
The Rare Books Collection, located on the sixth level of the Downtown Campus Library, contains old and rare books from 1370 to present day. The collection spans areas of literature, history, religion, philosophy, and natural history, reflecting the personal interests of donors who have given their own collections. This exhibit takes a look at a smaller yet nonetheless unique collection of artists' books, works of art in book form, all made by hand. This exhibit includes works by local and regional artists including books created by College of Creative Arts Professor of Graphic Design Eve Faulkes, the late Professor Emeritus, Cliff Harvey, photographer Steve Lawson, former WVU Books Arts professor and master typographer, Rich Hopkins, among others.
