The Hidden Art of Bookplates
December 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Artwork can be found all around us. Often it is seen on the walls of museums, but it also can be found scattered among the pages of books. While these illustrations tend to get all of the attention of art lovers, the small bookplates that are pasted to the inside cover can be just as beautiful and tell a story all their own. Jessica Jenkins, curator at Minnetrista, will discuss the history of bookplates and what they can reveal about their owners, creators, and the times in which they were made.
