Rare Books from the Haverford Collection and their most Modern Renditions
Haverford’s rare book collection is exceptional. The rarity and beauty of the books are assets that enhance enjoyment of the texts and exemplifies the best values of a liberal arts education.
A broad appreciation of literature today, however, includes graphic books. The literary experience is of a condensed account presented through intense illustration and is in striking contrast to that of the more traditional text-based book.
Experience and consider these differences for yourself. Each day during exam week, December 14-18, 2009, a rare book and its graphic counterpart will be on display in Special Collections. Take a study break and be intrigued and challenged!
