Look At What We Did

The Book Beautiful Honors course draws to a close. Over the past 15 weeks the students have forged the stacks of the Morrow Library, learned to know and love the special collections, and appreciate all the wonderful librarians who assisted us in research, as well as our creative endeavors. All of the students designed, carved and printed their own bookplates; designed and created edible books for the International Edible Book Festival; researched, selected and located books and items for sale to build a personal collection; wrote weekly blogs on the study of a book of their choice; and designed, selected the materials and made, with their own hands, beautiful bindings. A group of enthusiastic and engaged students like no other. They accused the course of tricking them into learning. This is good.
