Printing & Graphic Arts Collection
The Printing & Graphic Arts Collection documents the development of letterform, from 13th century manuscripts to contemporary digitized type, and all aspects of the art of the book, including design, printing, illustration, and paper. In addition to writing manuals, type specimens, and decorated papers, the collection includes vast holdings of illuminated and calligraphic manuscripts; illustrated books from the 15th century to today's artists' books; drawings for book illustration; early photography; and architectural drawings. Materials in the collection are accessed through the Houghton Reading Room. See Houghton Library's FAQ for additional information on this collection.
