A cool thing today:
Please join us this afternoon (4:15-6 p.m.) for a drop-in open house in the Davison Rare Book Room to celebrate Islamicate book arts. Highlights include 17th- and 18th-century English translations of the Qur’an, contemporary artists’ books, and a series of books and posters commemorating the booksellers of Al-Mutanabbi Street in Bagdad.
Please share this with anyone who may be interested.
