The Library has curated a very special display with titles from Arion Press, which pairs great artists with great literature to create beautiful books by hand. Arion Press publishes several limited editions every year, each conceptually unique and printed from metal types cast on site.
See the rare display outside the Idaho Room in The Community Library.
