While the image bank is a rich place to start for those interested in book visual history, we have found since the creation of the exhibition “A Place of Reading” that there are seemingly countless images of readers and their books which were not included in the original exhibit.

The AAS online inventory for the Portraits collection is one resource which features many examples of sitters and their books. One such example is that of Hannah Adams.
For a snapshot of the collection (or a quick browse for portraits of readers) you may go to the page Browse Portraits by Thumbnails
