The following exhibit at the Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center (105 Seminary Street, Pennsburg);

Within and Without: The Art of the Book
April 13 – September 30

Books take us to different times and places with the stories held within their pages, through beautiful prose and inspiring ideas. The books themselves, as well, can be things of great beauty that can be appreciated as objects as much as for their content. Visit the Heritage Center this spring and summer for a glimpse of some the extraordinary holdings in our library collection – from the exquisite gems of fraktur bookplates to carefully tooled book bindings and meticulously engraved illustrations, and much more. It will be a feast for the eyes of every bibliophile!

Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center, 105 Seminary Street, Pennsburg, Pa. Free admission.
