2nd Annual Book Collectors Conference

The conference is open to collectors, faculty, library friends, and bibliophiles. Seminars by leading scholars, researchers, and staff will vary between Western and Eastern print traditions between the medieval worlds and the last century. We will offer opportunities to insect, and in some cases handle, American and European fine press books, to explore the richly illustrated literature of Victorian England to see century-old handmade books and scrolls of Imperial Japan, to enjoy illuminated manuscripts fashioned by monastic foundations, and to understand the ubiquitous newspapers of the early Mormon Church. To register visit the book conference web site at http://sc.lib.byu.edu/bookconference.
