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.
Therefore, rather than have the image bank be a “closed” area of the exhibit, we decided to allow visitors of the site to view additional images in a blog-style format. Images in this section will be tagged and added as frequently as we can find them.
