Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? Sometimes the materials and design of a book binding have a lot to say about when and where and how a book was used and made. This visual feast of rare books will have you looking at books in a new way, seeing details you never knew were there, and give you a whole new way to judge a book by its cover.
