New Acquisitions: Fine Press Books

In past months, Special Collections has added many books to our Fine Press collections. New acquisitions include examples from 20th century hand press publishers like the Hogarth Press, Cuala Press, and Grabhorn Press, as well as a number of titles from the Limited Editions Club (making our collection nearly complete!). We’ve also received a number of pieces from contemporary fine press publishers like the Arion Press and Scripps College Press. Here is a sampling of new acquisitions available to view in Special Collections, with interesting design details from each book:
