In Treasures of Design, Art historian Chris Szczesny-Adams will present the history of design in print (from Gutenberg to the 20th century) through the library's rare materials including Original Leaves from Famous Books, The Voices of Friends Concerning John Plankinton, and
Alphonse Mucha's poster Sarah Bernhardt.
