looking at books

July 17, 2019

The University of Washington Libraries Book Arts & Rare Book Collections is home to more than 40,000 titles not found in the regular Libraries stacks. Dating from the 11th century to the 21st, the 21,000-strong Book Arts Collection includes an extensive and growing number of artist-made and poetry books.

Materials are limited to in-library use and some require an appointment. For information, visit the website, call Special Collections at 206-543-1929, and see photographs of a few artist-made books on Atlas Obscura.
