Penrose Library collects Fine Press and Artists’ Books, with an emphasis on contemporary English-language material.
This collection highlights the beauty of the book-as-object with examples of fine press books that emphasize hand-printing techniques and artists' books that move beyond the traditional codex format to challenge our notions of the book. Whenever possible, we attempt to collect books that intersect with other collections (such as leaf books, cookery, and books on books). Within this collection are sub-collections of miniature books and Shakespeariana.
