THE JOHN CARTER BROWN LIBRARY staff and invited curators prepare public exhibitions of material selected from the collections.
The Library’s newest exhibition, Printers' Devils and Printers' Delights: The Book in Spanish America, draws on the John Carter Brown Library's unparalleled collection of Spanish American imprints to explore aspects of the history of the book in the region that are rarely examined elsewhere. The exhibition addresses topics such as the printing houses and printing presses; paper, ink, and type; the often-anonymous apprentices and journeymen; bookbinding, and more. Visit this exhibition in the Reading Room from December 2014 to April 2015.
Recent exhibitions may also be visited virtually. The online version serves as a record of an exhibition and ensures that our audience will be able to view the treasures of the John Carter Brown Library from any place on earth with internet access. Many of these books may be seen in their entirety online on the JCB's Internet Archive site.
