Breaking the Binding: Printing and the Third Dimension
Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library
Since the advent of printing on paper, attempts have been made to show dimensionality. Drawn from the Beinecke's collections, this exhibition will show the many interesting ways that the two-dimensional format has been manipulated to add depth, perspective, and motion. On view will be flap books, pop-ups, perspective books, panoramas, and peep-shows – delightful and colorful inventions for visitors of all ages. [ca. 120 items]
The exhibition gallery is closed while the library's building is under renovation.
